Project-based learning curriculum for controls, robotics, mechatronics, and embedded systems using LabVIEW and the MyRIO Control.
A one year program delivering project-based learning with LabVIEW and the TETRIX®PRIME build kit.
This one-year high-school or early-college-level program prepares students to be Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer. This course includes project based instruction using the core features and functionalities in LabVIEW Development System. With the focus on system design build and control, this two-semester course teaches the core principles of cyber-physical systems applicable to multi disciplinary engineering fields.
Provide an immersive instructional experience with project-based learning
Mechatronics delivers instruction in a format today’s digital learners thrive in: blended learning with interactive online delivery simulations and team-based activities
Project-based learning is an essential learning strategy throughout Mechatronics.
Authentic activities create a relevant educational experience for students.
Students develop communication, team work and leadership skills while also learning engineering principles.
Deliver a pathway to certification in a format that engages digital-native students
The NI Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer is the first step in the three-part NI LabVIEW certification process.
It indicates a broad working knowledge of the LabVIEW environment, a basic understanding of coding and documentation best practices, and the ability to read and interpret existing code.
You can use this certification to assess and validate an individual’s LabVIEW development skills for the purpose of project staffing or career advancement.
