The Delta Beta chapter of Eta Kappa Nu recently inducted seven electrical engineering bachelor’s degree students and one graduate student from Lamar University.

Eta Kappa Nu is the national electrical and computer engineering honor society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the largest technical professional society in the world. It includes professionals involved in all facets of electrical, electronic and computing fields, as well as related areas of science and technology.

The inductees into the Eta Kappa Nu from Lamar University are Ethan Ellender, Joel Lozano, Tyler Mackey, Marinko Mandich, John Pickren, Ryan Watts and Jesse Wells. Mohammed Rony, a master’s degree student, was inducted into the honor society as well. 

Students are considered for membership based on their scholastic standing, character and leadership. Professional members must be nominated by current members in order to gain entry into the honor’s society. Their contributions also factor into their eligibility.

The induction fees for all of this year’s inductees were paid for by Jimmie Cypret, a 1964 graduate from the electrical engineering program at Lamar.
