Fifth Induction

UPE Annual Convention in Raleigh, NC

Jason Gaare and Dr. Riedesel represented the University of Nebraska-Lincoln chapter of Upsilon Pi Epsilon at the UPE Annual Convention, held in conjunction with ACM's SIGCSE 2012 this year in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Our chapter of UPE this year is creating a project to assist with the graduation commencement.  The goal is to display each student's name next on the screen as the student crosses the stage.  A prototype of this project has been build, with the hopes to be used in-house by the CSE graduation event, and hope to expand it University-wide in the coming year.

The technology used to display the name is a QR-code reader that encodes each students name, which is read by a web-cam and Java program to decode the QR-code and display the name on the screen.

UPE Annual Convention in Dallas, TX

Our chapter once again drove to the UPE Annual Convention which was held in conjunction with ACM's SIGCSE 2011 Technical Symposium on Education in Computing Sciences in Dallas, TX.

This year, the Upsilon Pi Epsilon project has once again been for University of Nebraska-Lincoln advising.  The project this year consists of creating an online note-taking system for advisors.  This system's goal is to replace the existing paper files of students, giving students a new digital file.

3rd Inductions

Our next initiation is schedule to be held at 5pm on April 16th in the Schorr Center.  If you were invited to join, please respond by Tuesday, April 6th, 2010.
