On October 19, 50 outstanding Seidenberg students and one faculty member were inducted into the New York Delta Chapter of Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE) at Pace University. In the opening of the induction ceremony, Sotiris Skevoulis, professor of computer science, gave a talk on “Software Engineering: The Road to Rigorous Software Development, Education and Practice”.
Every third semester, Seidenberg juniors, seniors, master’s and doctoral students meeting the eligibility requirements and receiving the recommendation of the faculty, are invited to join UPE. The inductees receive a one-year student membership in the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), a certificate, and a key pin with the UPE insignia.
Upsilon Pi Epsilon is the first and only international Honor Society for the Computing and Information Disciplines established to recognize academic excellence and service to the disciplines. The society is endorsed by both the ACM and the IEEE Computer Society.
