Upholding academic excellence

Upsilon Pi Epsilon is the first and only international honor society for the Computing Sciences. The UC Berkeley chapter, launched in 1995, honors the top tier of Computer Science students on campus.

We help others

UPE keeps all students from Berkeley's technical disciplines well-informed of our student activities through intensive marketing over the web and e-mail, print posters, and in-class announcements to the student body. UPE engages students with infosessions, tutoring, workshops, and more, making us renowned for our service to the university community. We not only reach out to computer science students and faculty, but also the EECS, math, and other engineering majors.

Connections and Opportunities

We work closely with major corporations, organizing events ranging from brief one-hour info-sessions about companies and recruiting opportunities to full-scale day-long sessions to showcase their research and product development. Our resumé books make it easier for companies to target the top Berkeley CS students.


Each semester, we extend membership to the top third of declared CS majors as provided by the CS department. Candidates will join one of our committees and contribute to the Berkeley CS community.

Upcoming Events

UPE, QCB, Rigetti Computing Present: Quantum Computing Explained

Date: 02/26/18
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: UC Berkeley UPE

UPE, QCB, Rigetti Computing Present: Quantum Computing Explained

Rigetti is a Berkeley based quantum computing startup trying to build quantum integrated circuits. Superconducting devices are promising candidates for building a fully-functional quantum computer. In this talk, Riccardo Manenti will present basic notions of superconducting circuits, single qubit rotations and two-qubit entangling gates. He will briefly present some fabrication techniques adopted at Rigetti Computing, and some quantum algorithms that can be run on near term quantum devices. Free food will be provided!

Oracle Infosession/Tech Talk

This is your chance to discover what everyday life at Oracle is like. We’ll also talk about Database In-Memory, an Oracle product that provides a unique, dual-format architecture and leverages state-of-the-art algorithms for scans, joins, and aggregations to deliver leading-edge, in-memory analytic performance for Real Time Enterprises. See you there! Dinner wil be served. Bring your resume for a chance to win an Amazon fitBip smartwatch or a JBL Clip 2 bluetooth speaker (must be present to win).
