Academic & Research

Whether in the classroom or the lab, today’s students and researchers are looking to increase their rate of discovery and build solutions faster.

Whatever your needs, we have the right solution

You design your next project or you are searching for the optimal way to overcome an existing challenge. You would like to enhance your STEM laboratory or you are in the process of designing an engineering program from scratch. You may want to built a lab by sourcing equipment from a number of different suppliers or get an exotic device and need a supplier to organize purchasing and delivery. Whatever your need, we have a solution that will accomplish your task.

Accelerate Discovery With the NI Platform

Researchers are driving time-critical, ambitious innovation while addressing grand engineering challenges in the broad areas of transportation, wireless communications, medicine, energy and climate change. Across each of these application areas, researchers need to easily acquire measurements, scale to complex multidisciplinary systems, and rapidly prototype a scalable solution. NI is central to accelerating researcher innovation by providing the technology and support to prototype systems, publish findings and secure funding.

NI Elvis

The NI Engineering Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) Engineering Lab Workstation provides a project-based learning experience using online measurements and practical, embedded design.

Teaching Resources

Engineering educators are preparing students to design the systems that will tackle the world’s grand challenges. This requires engaging, hands-on curriculum that inspires students and puts theory into practice. Browse NI’s portal to find open-ended projects and ABET-aligned laboratories to accelerate student discovery in key topics and application areas.

Solutions for Engineering Curiccula

Topics in engineering courses vary widely from elementary to the sophisticated and integrating project-based learning into each can be a monumental undertaking involving months of research, emails, and meetings. Simplify your proposal by preparing with National Instrument’s recommended solutions for each class, comparing the benefits of each recommendation to make a fully informed decision.

Access Instructor's Resources

You can request access instructor access to obtain resources like solution manuals and complete LabVIEW code that students cannot access.
