Encyclopedia > Kappa Eta Kappa

Kappa Eta Kappa (ΚΗΚ) is a nationally recognized co-ed professional fraternity that was founded in 1923 at the University of Iowa. KHK requires that members are majoring or will major in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science. A fraternity is an organization that represents the relationship between its members as akin to brotherhood. ... 1923 was a common year starting on Monday (link will take you to calendar). ... The University of Iowa is a university in Iowa City, Iowa. ...


The preamble to the constitutuon of KHK states the principles of the organization.

"Believing that the attainment of education as well as technical training is the aim of all engineers, we band ourselves together to foster and promote fraternal relationships among the electrical engineering students; to strive at all times for the maintenance of a complete and lasting understanding and fellowship between faculty and students; to unceasingly cherish and develop character and ideals of service as the necessary attributes of the profession."
