The computing and information disciplines are relatively young. Yet despite their comparative youth, the computing and information disciplines have 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 (UPE) to promote the computing and information disciplines and to encourage their contribution to the enhancement of knowledge.
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. UPE is the first and only, existing international honor society in the Computing and Information disciplines.
Membership in UPE is via invitation only for students who meet the following requirements:
- Majoring in Computer Science, Information Technology, or related technical field
- GPA of 3.0 or above
- Completed at least 60 credits (Juniors and above)
Meet these requirements? Look out for invitation emails in late Fall and Spring. Once you get an invitation, you must also pay a $60 fee to become inducted into the honor society. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Looking to get involved in the meantime? We recommend you check out our new partner organization INIT, which has membership open to all FIU students and offers technical and career development programs to help you land an internship or job in tech!
