Beau Schwabe

Beau Schwabe

Machine Design and Development

In the early 80’s with his first ATARI computer, Beau taught himself Assembly programming language by the time he had turned 12. Ever since, he has been a programmer. Over the past 30 years, Beau developed skills in prosthetic research and development where he developed and designed various bio sensory feedback devices which included software, mechanical, and PCB design. Beau also developed IC layout skills and later progressed to designing machinery to assist in forensic design and deconstruction of integrated circuits. “Thinking outside of the box” should be his middle name as he takes great pride in the unique approaches he often takes when searching for a solution.

Internship Program

For years Oklahoma Robotics has been involved in FIRST Robotics and began a paid internship program with students participating on FTC and FRC teams to learn real-world application of STEM in business. Some of our interns have moved on to STEM fields, others to different career paths, but all taking away valuable hands-on skill in business and robotics.
