Upsilon Pi Epsilon

ABOUT UPE
Computing is a relatively young discipline. Yet despite its comparative youth, computing has had an unparalleled effect on almost every aspect of contemporary life. Indeed it is difficult to predict the ultimate place of the computer in our world. It is the express purpose of Upsilon Pi Epsilon to promote the Computing and Information disiplines and to encourage its contribution to the enhancement of knowledge.

Upsilon Pi Epsilon was first organized at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, in 1967. The international organization now consists of chapters in various colleges and universities in North America and overseas.

UPE is the only internationally recognized honor society for the computing and information disciplines and 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 also a member of the Association of College Honor Societies(ACHS), which is the most respected association for honor societies.

UPE is also a charter member of the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES).
