Katie Bishop is one of six Georgia Tech undergraduates who has been chosen for a Brooke Owens Fellowship. Bishop is a second-year electrical engineering major in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).
Four students in the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering and one student in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering were also chosen for this fellowship (see related article). Established in 2017, the Brooke Owens Fellowship includes a summer internship at an aerospace-related company, two professional mentorships, and lifelong connections with a vast network of other aerospace professionals.
Bishop will be working with Virgin Galactic for her internship this summer. After her first year as a student at Georgia Tech, she interned at Boeing as a systems engineer supporting the Chinook program. On campus, Bishop is a member of the Society of Women Engineers and serves as its conference chair.
Bishop is a peer instructor with The Hive, the student organization that runs the Interdisciplinary Design Commons maker space located in the Van Leer Building. Additionally, she is involved with the Georgia Tech Undergraduate Student Launch Initiative team on the avionics subteam, which aims to develop a rocket-propelled vehicle and scientific payload, subject to the approval and review process of NASA.
