One of Aisha Bowe's focus points is trying to advance aeronautics research for the benefit of society. She does this by working on next generation transportation systems; examining tools that make sure aircraft will not crash into one another. Bowe earned both a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering and a master’s degree in space engineering from the University of Michigan.
The talents and skills that Bowe has been able to obtain have provided her with many great opportunities. One of these opportunities was being asked to assist with integration of unmanned aerial vehicles into the national airspace system. Bowe’s role calls for work with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Defense (DoD), and the Joint Planning and Development Office to help manage the team developing technologies and procedures that will allow the operation and integration of these aircraft into the national airspace.
In addition to her job, she is a member of the National Society of Black Engineers and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Bowe also serves as NASA’s liaison to the board of directors of the Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement (MESA) school program at San Jose State University. The MESA program helps students to prepare for and graduate from a four-year institution with a degree in a STEM field.
The MESA program at San Jose State University has allowed Bowe to share her passion with hundreds of educationally disadvantage youth each year. Her work with MESA includes setting up shadow days at the NASA AMES Research Center where the kids can follow a mentor around and get a feel for a career in STEM fields. In addition to that, Ms. Bowe also mentors many MESA students and has worked with NASA to provide summer internships to some graduating students entering an engineering or science programs at a four-year institutions.
A virtual spokesperson for black technology, BlackEngineer aspires to serve as leading news and information provider on the advancements in black technology with deep insights into black engineering, black entrepreneurs, black education, and historically black colleges and universities (HBCU). In fact, BlackEngineer is one of the very few to promote the achievements of black technology. The Black engineer of the year awards (BEYA) is one of our successful ventures to promote black technology, progress and achievements made in black technology, and the sentiments of the Black community in the US, the UK, Caribbean, and Africa.
Black technology entrepreneurs are increasingly providing the horsepower that drives the global economy. Over the last two decades, black entrepreneurs have created more jobs, and contributed much more to the economic expansion of the Black community as a whole, than any black pastor or politician. Black entrepreneurs are taking risks and building businesses that generate economic growth and increase prosperity in underserved areas, as more minority-owned and minority-focused businesses emerge, willing to serve the financial needs of Black entrepreneurs. US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine's annual list of Top Black Technology Entrepreneurs reflects the expanding scope of leading Black entrepreneurs in information technology, homeland security, and defense.
