IEEE N3XT LogoThe annual IEEE-HKN Student Leadership Conference is a signature program of the society and is an opportunity for your chapter to meet with other officers, members, faculty advisers, members of the Board of Governors, and staff. The conference includes opportunities for professional development, leadership training, and networking. Read More.

This event is an IEEE N3XT® Affiliate Event and will include a fire-side chat style conversation with three Engineering-Driven individuals who represent a variety of entrepreneurial viewpoints both technically and with relation to the programs and projects which they have launched throughout their careers.

IEEE N3XT® embodies the spirit of future technological development — the root word “next,” and the number “3” represent the three pillars of entrepreneurial thinking: ideasinnovation, and inspiration.

Students will be encouraged to ask questions about the varied career tracks and ventures of our speakers and how the skills of entrepreneurship have helped to make each of their endeavors stronger.
