Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE), is an international honor society for the computing and information disciplines, first organized at Texas A&M University in 1967. Today, this international organization consists of chapters at colleges and universities throughout North America and overseas. The mission of UPE is to recognize academic excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the computing and information disciplines.

Ashland University’s UPE Chapter was formed in January 2002. Sophomore, junior and senior computer science majors who meet the eligibility requirements are invited to join this prestigious honorary. Eligibility is based on progress in computer science coursework, grades earned from computer science courses, and a student’s cumulative grade point average. The chapter’s faculty advisor is Dr. Paul Cao.
