About UPE

Upsilon Pi Epsilon is an honor society whose members are among the most outstanding undergraduate and graduate Computer Science students at North Central College. UPE holds events for members and students aiming to help them gain the skills and information that will help them both during their time at North Central and in their continuing professional lives.

Our students are encouraged to grow in their understanding of the discipline by mentoring and tutoring their fellow students as well as volunteering time with our Girls Who Code program. Scholarships are offered through the UPE organization to members in order to encourage our strive towards excellence . The overall mission of Upsilon Pi Epsilon is to recognize academic excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the Computing and Information Disciplines.

What we do

Upsilon Pi Epsilon events include field trips to tech companies and government facilities, tech talks, professor talks, and fun cuttings. Members both learn and teach through becoming mentors of incoming underclassmen. Tech talks aim to get students excited about innovations and current technologies.
