The Kappa Epsilon Fraternity was founded on February 22,1968  by (12)  students from  the  College  of  Engineering  of  the  University  of   the Philippines.  It was dream of these  individuals  to  give  other  students  an option  to  join  a  non-traditional fraternity. 

In July 29, 1990, 14 UPLB students were initiated by the members of Kappa Epsilon UP Diliman Chapter to form the the first batch of KE members in UPLB. Thus, the UPLB Chapter was born.

In the following years, UPLB brethren established chapters in UP Baguio, UP Mindanao, PUP Quezon, Batangas, Oriental Mindoro and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the Middle East.
