LabVIEW Training Sessions

Details of the workshops:

Date: November 2016 – March 2017

Place: National Institute of Applied Science and Technology, INSAT

Number of participants: 25 Students

Number of sessions: 8 sessions

Engineering is dedicated to meet humanity needs. Thus engineers must master several tools to contribute effectively to the advancement of technology, to stay ahead of the curve, to think beyond current challenges and to develop solutions for the future. Therefore, IEEE IAS INSAT SB Chapter organized a series of training sessions in LabVIEW in collaboration with National Instruments (NI) program LSA (LabVIEW Student Ambassador).

The LabVIEW Student Ambassador (LSA) Program empowers engineering students to learn the LabVIEW graphical programming environment used by millions of engineers and scientists to develop sophisticated measurement, test and control systems. The student will provide fellow students and faculty members on campus with a series of workshops giving them the opportunity to achieve LabVIEW proficiency, certification and product support.

The workshops were conducted by Hichem BILLALI, who is LSA, senior year student in Industrial Computing & Automatic Control at INSAT and our friend.

Participants learned the basics of LabVIEW, they learned how to develop applications with the LabVIEW graphical development environment and created applications using the “state machine” design template.

We also invited Mr. Mehdi BOUZID, who is area sales manager at NI for a special workshop “Do Engineering” on 8 February 2017. The topic of the workshop included NI myRIO features and applications, he also gave us an introduction to NI myDAQ and in the end of the workshop an insight into ‘NI Technology preview‘. And of course his presence was so valuable, Mr. Mehdi answered all our questions concerning NI Student Design Contest: NI Graphical System Design Musabaka 2017 and about his journey as an engineer in National Instruments.
