UPSILON PI EPSILON  back to top

I am also the faculty advisor for Upsilon Pi Epsilon.  Below is a little information about UPE.  You must have earned a minimum of 45 credit hours towards your degree with at least a 3.0 GPA or be a graduate student with at least 15 hours and a 3.5 GPA to be eligible for membership.

Upsilon Pi Epsilon is an honorary society whose membership consists of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students in Computing Science. Only schools that offer a degree in a computing science-related discipline may be chartered. Likewise, prospective student members must be working toward a degree in Computing Science at the time they are considered for membership. Yet members are chosen not only for their scholastic achievement in a computing science program, but also for distinguishing themselves as true professionals by meeting the standards of the society. Membership is limited to those who can effectively achieve the original goals of the society.

Upsilon Pi Epsilon is the first and only, existing international honor society in the computing sciences. It has received endorsements from the two largest computer organizations in the world, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS).  UPE is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS).
