Metropolia first in Finland to participate LabVIEW Academy

18.01.2011

Metropolia's lecturer Anssi Ikonen and National Instruments' Academy Program Manager Filip Langenaken.

Metropolia is the first academic institution in Finland to acquire the National Instruments LabVIEW Academy status in graphical programming education.

The widening use of NI LabVIEW graphical programming in research and industrial use has led to increased demand for engineers with skills in graphical programming.

LabVIEW Academy membership provides Metropolia's engineering students an opportunity, knowledge, and tools to participate in the Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) exam, gaining a valuable addition to their resume.

To support academic institutions in responding to the needs for graphical programming knowledge National Instruments has launched a program called NI LabVIEW Academy. Academy membership guarantees certified lecturers and laboratories for LabVIEW education and provides a classroom curriculum and hands-on exercise package to be used in LabVIEW programming courses.

"We are excited about Metropolia's membership in the Academy programme. We trust that the co-operation with National Instruments will provide us new and innovative means and tools for education of measurement systems and graphical programming languages," says Anssi Ikonen, Senior Lecturer in embedded engineering.
