R.S. Rowe graduated as a concurrent Bachelor’s Degree student at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama. She studied Biosystems Engineering and Spanish Language in the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and Liberal Arts colleges. She worked as a Resident Assistant on Auburn’s campus for two years before transitioning to an off-campus housing arrangement. Rowe proceeded to work as an intern in the Office of Innovation Advancement and Commercialization in the Auburn Research Park. She was supervised while working with marketing projects that come into the IAC office, and also worked with the Prior Arts of patents proposed by AU stakeholders.
Academically, Rowe chose Biosystems Engineering because she has an interest in natural resources and sustainability. Rowe transferred to Biosystems Engineering and added her concurrent degree in Spanish during her sophomore year at Auburn University. Ultimately, Rowe hopes to work to continue the advancement of technology in renewable energy, water treatment, sustainable agriculture, infrastructure, land use, their applicable patents, and intellectual property.
Rowe also values her education in Spanish. With over half of the world’s population speaking the language, Rowe feels that her skill in the Spanish language is one to continue to cultivate to use in her personal and professional life. With aspirations of working abroad and exploring the world, Rowe believes that her love of language will take her to all of the places she would love to experience.
