Purpose

Computing Science is a relatively young discipline. Yet despite its comparative youth, Computing Science 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 Sciences and to encourage its contribution to the enhancement of knowledge.


History

Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE) 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. The ETSU chapter was chartered in 1986. Membership in UPE is by faculty ballot and, as such, acknowledges those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding talent, high scholarship, and high standards in computing sciences. Membership in UPE is a distinct honor which is recognized throughout the computing community. Over the last several years, two ETSU students have received National UPE Scholarships.
