Daniel Lowe began programming before PCs had hard drives and built a two-player graphical computer game before graduating high school. Mr. Lowe’s love of aviation and software brought him to Rockwell Collins. He excelled and eventually led a team to build a tailorable product from new code within the schedule that was delivered with no issues reported by the multiple customers that used it. He studied Computer Science at Cal Poly Pomona where he also obtained his private pilot’s license. In 2001, Mr. Lowe was nominated by peers from four different disciplines to be Rockwell Collins’ Engineer of the Year. Outside Rockwell Collins, he enjoys applying his intuition and problem-solving skills to build unique woodworking projects like staggered bunk beds and popsicle-stick bridges that support over 300 pounds.
