UNT’s Club for Cyber Security & Intelligence (CS&I) provides students with an opportunity to learn about the concepts and techniques of Information Security paired with the chance to network with current security professionals in the North Texas regions. We are currently involved with volunteering at the North Texas chapter of Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) and the Dallas chapter of Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). These students get to attend these professional organization events and network with professionals. Several of our students have received internships and job offers because of volunteering at these events. We compete at several national InfoSec competitions including both the National Cyber League (NCL) and the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC). The training received as a result in completing this competitions help provide students with the knowledge and experience to pass various InfoSec certifications like Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and CompTia’s Security+. Our club is designed to help students with the knowledge, experience, and networking opportunities required to jump start a great career in Information Security.

Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the international honor society for Electrical and Computer Engineers. Outstanding persons are elected to Eta Kappa Nu primarily from the junior and senior classes of accredited undergraduate programs. Graduate Students and distinguished professional engineers are also eligible. Eligibility, naturally, must depend on marked ability, as evidenced by scholarship, personal character, useful voluntary services, and distinguished accomplishments, all of which indicate that the candidate will be or is a success in his or her profession.

Eta Kappa Nu has a far broader purpose than merely to award a badge of distinction to scholars. As conceived by its founders and as carried forward by its membership during more than two generations, another aim is to assist its members throughout their lives in becoming better professionals as well as better citizens. In turn, it is still another purpose of the organization, that its members be a constructive force, helping fellow members and non-members alike to improve the standards of the profession, the courses of instruction, and the institutions generally where its chapters are established.

Some of the awards and activities include:

  1. Outstanding Electrical Engineering Senior
  2. Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer
  3. Outstanding Professor Award
  4. Outstanding Chapter Award
  5. National Student Leadership Conference

IEEE Computer Society strives to introduce students to the professional world of computer science. This organization provides leadership and structure to enable and support interactions relating to technical innovation and the exchange of technical information and services, for the benefit of providers and users of all aspects of computing technologies worldwide. President is David Lowery. Faculty Advisor is David Keathly.
