From schools to space programs, LabVIEW is powering innovation in engineering. That’s why students who learn on the NI Education Platform are ready to work, and achieve, after graduation.
How do we prepare our students for jobs that don’t even exist yet? Cultivating a project-based environment is the best place to start. The NI Education Platform, with LabVIEW, is the driver of that classroom experience.
With its engineering heritage, LabVIEW makes a natural complement to high school Career Technology and Engineering classrooms. That’s where students learn the tools they’ll continue to use throughout their careers. But any project-based environment will thrive on the NI Education Platform. Physics and Chemistry teachers especially like that LabVIEW takes the emphasis off busy-work and focuses students on the science concepts—showing them real-world applications in real time. Even Math teachers appreciate how LabVIEW’s live-data capabilities let students investigate and see theories with their own eyes.
Robotics teams are engineers in training. They work together towards clear objectives under tight deadlines. That’s why they use National Instruments technology, just like the pros. Students at every level of the FIRST robotics competitions are using NI LabVIEW-based software to power their projects. It’s capable enough to solve hard problem, and simple enough to use in the heat of battle.
Every university lab needs a bedrock data acquisition and analysis suite. In thousands of colleges and universities all over the world, that suite comes from National Instruments. Professors like empowering their students to actually do engineering, not just memorize theory. And when it’s time for researchers to prototype new innovations, they choose LabVIEW to accelerate development times.
LabVIEW was built for the demands of engineering over two decades ago. Since then, it’s become the industry standard around the world. The reason is simple: It’s powerful and uniquely suited for the programming needs of engineering. Today, LabVIEW is a key component in thousands of forward-thinking operations, including SpaceX, Tesla and CERN. Photo courtesy SpaceX
