THE BRIDGE is now 100% Digital

IEEE-HKN's signature publication, THE BRIDGE, is an interactive digital magazine available for download and reading on the website.

There are many reasons to enjoy the new BRIDGE:

  • THE BRIDGE will have interactive links and videos while taking advantage of the latest social media communication tools.
  • Members can submit articles for publication and have their member profile featured in THE BRIDGE.
  • Since THE BRIDGE will be available for all to see, we hope to inspire individuals to get involved with IEEE-HKN in many ways, including:
    • Non-members inquiring on how to become a member of IEEE-HKN
    • Motivating members to start or reactivate IEEE-HKN Chapters
    • Generating interest from companies or recruiters seeking to hire student or professional members that embody the academic excellence and leadership qualities of IEEE-HKN

THE BRIDGE will be a green publication, fulfilling our commitment to "use technology to advance humanity."
