History of UPE
What is UPE?
Upsilon Pi Epsilon is an honor
society which was founded in 1967 to recognize scholarship and
professionalism in the Computing Sciences. In the 28 years since then,
over 120 institutions of higher education around the world have
established UPE chapters. It is the
only international honor society in the Computing Sciences. UPE has been
officially recognized by both the ACM
(Association for Computing Machinery) and by the
IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineers) Computer Society.
UPE at Purdue University
The Purdue University Department of
Computer Sciences chapter is the 115th in the world, and the second in
Indiana. It was formed in the fall semester of 1992. Daniel Coppersmith was the
student primarily responsible for establishing the local chapter with
assistance from faculty advisor Eugene Spafford.
Coppersmith served as the group's first president. The Charter Ceremony for the
Chapter was performed on October 17, 1992, by Robert Roggio, a Purdue graduate
and member of the UPE Executive Council.
The local Beta Chapter has been approved by the Purdue University Dean of
Students office as an official student-run organization.
