Sigma Xi: The Scientific Research Society is a non-profit honor society which was founded in 1886 at Cornell University by a junior faculty member and a handful of graduate students.[2] Members elect others on the basis of their research achievements or potential. Despite the name, Sigma Xi is neither a fraternity nor a sorority, and today is open to all qualified individuals who are interested in science and engineering.

Eta Kappa Nu (???) is the electrical and computer engineering honor society of the IEEE, founded in October 1904 by Maurice L. Carr at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The organization currently has around 200 student chapters and several thousand members. Effective 1 September 2010, hitherto-independent HKN became an organizational unit of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), making membership in the IEEE a requirement for membership in HKN. Membership in HKN thus became equivalent to an "honor student" member category of IEEE membership. Originally headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, as a result of the merger its headquarters are now located at the IEEE Operations Center in Piscataway, New Jersey.
