Type Honor Society

Upsilon Pi Epsilon (ΥΠΕ): International Honor Society for the Computing and Information Disciplines, is the first and only existing one of its kind.

UPE was founded in 1967 at Texas A&M University and contains over 210 chapters at college campuses across the world. It is endorsed by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society (IEEE-CS), the two largest computer organizations in the world. Aside from conferring honor on computer science and computer engineering students, it has a large involvement with the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest.

Membership in UPE, like many other honor societies, is lifetime. Newly inducted student members get a free year of ACM student level membership as well. Additionally, UPE gives out a number of scholarships for its members and ACM members.
