Establish significant partnerships with external constituencies interested in promoting and subsidizing high quality computing science education,
Seek opportunities to extend individual memberships and chapter activities into additional environments yet to become identified.

Guidelines and Goals

  • 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.

    These goals include:

  • 1. The recognition of outstanding talent in the field of computing science,
  • 2. The promotion of high scholarship in computing science,
  • 3. The establishment and maintenance of high standards in computing science,
  • 4. The representation of computing science in interdisciplinary communications, and
  • 5. The encouragement of individual contributions to society through computing science.
