NI LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench) Academy is a tailored version of an Internationally recognized curriculum created by National Instruments (NI) .This academy was initiated by signing MOU with National Instruments in August 3rd 2011 and Purchase of software and related hardware as per the academy requirements. The sufficient workspace, requirements and support have been provided by the Management.
The LabVIEW Academy set up at PECby National Instruments is an initiative under their Planet NI (Nurturing Innovation) framework which strives to increase the employability of Indian engineering graduates by creating Centres of Excellence in engineering colleges which will provide cost effective access to world class latest technology for classroom teaching-learning. To make better engineers the LabVIEW Academy follows the concept of Experiential Education using Graphical system design approach. With a mission to educate students and to discover and disseminate knowledge through research, Prathyusha Engineering Collegeis leading the way towards producing world class engineers tuned to the demands of a fast changing global village . The Academy includes some of the powerful tools like, LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench) and state-of-art Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (ELVIS) integrated with other hardware/ software to train/ teach on providing customized solutions to industries in various specialized areas related to Test, Measurement & Control
