HKN Student Leadership Conference

A Transformative Experience

Join us this November for HKN’s premier event! The Student Learning Conference is a great place to connect, to learn, and to work beside HKN members from around the globe! This weekend is dedicated to turning top students and chapter officers into leaders. This three-day event features tracks for leadership training, advisor programming, technical presentations, professional development, labs, workshops, and a career and graduate school recruitment fair!

Don’t miss the recruitment fair, where top companies and universities will be here to meet YOU! Be interview ready, many are looking to hire for full-time, part-time and intern positions.

Visit with the numerous IEEE Technical Society representatives who have joined us this weekend. IEEE can truly be your technical home, a place where you find and work with mentors and stay up-to-date on the latest trends. You can research in specific fields, meet friends and future colleagues, and possibly even find grant funds and fellowships. IEEE is a great resource. Use it!
