Each year, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln chapter of Upsilon Pi Epsilon creates a project to demonstrate the skills and talents of the students in the Computer Science & Engineering department.
- In the 2014-2015 academic school year, Upsilon Pi Epsilon assisted the registrar's office with developing their FERPA website.
- In the 2012-2013 & 2013-2014 academic school year, the members of Upsilon Pi Epsilon created a score-board for the midwest regional ACM Programming Contest. It auto-aggregated the scores from multiple schools across the region who used PC2, and had a manual entry for other schools.
- In the 2011-2012 academic school year, the members of Upsilon Pi Epsilon created a program to read in QR-codes with names of students embedded in them. The goal was to allow the scanning of diplomas during graduation to display the name of the students on a screen while receiving their diploma. The system was tested for the Computer Science & Engineering Awards Ceremony in Spring 2012, and will hopefully be expanded to other University of Nebraska-Lincoln functions.
- In the 2010-2011 academic school year, the members of Upsilon Pi Epsilon created an online note-taking system for advisors. They worked with Information Services to create a sustainable project, and launched the project for the Arts & Sciences College at the end of the semester.
- In the 2009-2010 academic school year, the members of Upsilon Pi Epsilon created an Online New Student Enrollment Wiki to help NSE advisors advise incoming freshman.
- In the 2008-2009 academic school year, the members of Upsilon Pi Epsilon created an online mapping system which showed which classrooms in Avery Hall were occupied. The map data is currently incorrect due to the transition to MyRed :(
How to access the code for the projects
UPE members have access to the source code svn repository available on our CSE account. We do not have "web" access available at this time. Members can check out the repository by ssh'ing into CSE and running the command "svn co file:///home/misc/upe/repos/". Note: you must be apart of the "upe" group on the CSE server to run this command. You can check your groups by typing in "groups" while ssh'ed into CSE.
