What is Upsilon Pi Epsilon?

Upsilon Pi Epsilon is an International Honor Society for the Computing and Information Disciplines, and the only globally recognized Computer Science Honor Society for higher education. Membership in UPE signifies outstanding academic achievement and a commitment to the field of computer science. Clemson University founded South Carolina’s Alpha chapter of UPE in 1981, and continues to award membership to both undergraduate and graduate students who excel in the fields of computing.

Service Projects:

Members are encouraged to participate in projects that encourage a sense of creative discovery, and the curiosity essential to innovation. Our current project includes an ongoing partnership with local K-12 STEM classes, and can range from mentoring elementary students interested in computer science to volunteering at middle school robotics camps.
