The National Instruments India Academic Program strives to enhance learning in engineering colleges, the fun way i.e. through experiential learning. It has also been observed that Graphical System Design (GSD) is the best platform to facilitate experiential learning and is being rapidly adopted in more than 400 colleges in India to teach various engineering subjects.

Laboratory courses and Hands-on learning with the NI LabVIEW and NI hardware helps students understand the fundamentals thoroughly and become better engineers. This approach significantly helps bridge the gap between industry requirement and university learning. NI India is also supporting the academic research and has established partnerships with leading institutions like IIT’s, NIT’s, PSG Tech, Vellore Institute of Technology, etc.. One such example is the partnership with IIT and RDSO

NI LabVIEW Academy

The LabVIEW Academy program provides a classroom curriculum package to academic institutions and supports both credit and noncredit courses. LabVIEW Academy is for anyone seeking LabVIEW education and knowledge through an academic institution. After completing the LabVIEW Academy program, students have the opportunity, knowledge, and tools to attempt the Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) exam.

NI Centers of Excellence

Mission of NI Centers of Excellence

NI Center of Excellence requirements

  • Virtual Instrumentation used in teaching in a minimum of 3 engineering departments
  • At least 5 Labs in each department should be based on VI [Hardware and Software]
  • At least 1 Certified LabVIEW Instructor in every department
  • At least 1 Certified LabVIEW Instructor in every department
  • Students must take at least one course in which they learn how to develop & program using LabVIEW
