Two Illinois Tech computer science students have been awarded Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE) scholarships: fourth-year undergraduate student Jithin Joyson and second-year Ph.D. student Qitian Zeng. UPE is the International Honor Society for the Computing and Information Disciplines.
Joyson and Zeng were among a large pool of scholarship applicants, both undergraduate and graduate, evaluated by the Executive Council of UPE. They were selected for the awards based on their academic records, extracurricular activities with regards to the field of computer science, and the recommendation of their UPE advisor Matthew Bauer, senior lecturer of computer science. Joyson was the recipient of a UPE Academic Achievement Award and Zeng was the recipient of a UPE Honorable Mention Award. Both received a cash prize with their award.
