National Instruments and Manipal Institute of Technology (MIT) entered into a partnership to upgrade India engineering education.

With the creation of MIT's LabVIEW Academy, all of the school's computers will be equipped with NI's graphical programming environment for test, control and embedded design, and all its toolkits. The inauguration ceremonies for the LabVIEW Academy were led by SS Pabla, pro vice-chancellor of Manipal and university and director of MIT Manipal. Also present were Jayaram Pillai, NI's managing director for India, Russia and Arabia, and Manohar Pai, associate director of MIT's Innovation Centre. Other engineering colleges in the vicinity can also take advantage of MIT's pioneering initiative and enhance their own teaching and learning environments by accessing this LabVIEW Academy.

NI's LabVIEW Academy programme is an initiative under their Planet Nurturing Innovation (Planet NI) framework which is working to increase the employability of Indian engineering graduates. To this end they are creating Centres of Excellence in engineering colleges and universities which will provide cost-effective access to the latest technology for classroom teaching-learning. The LabVIEW Academy follows the concept of experiential education to graphical system design.

With a mission to educate students and to discover and disseminate knowledge through research, MIT is leading the way towards producing world class engineers tuned to the demands of a fast changing global village. With a strong focus on the emphasis on fundamentals in education, MIT is in alignment with the Planet NI philosophy of experiential education. The LabVIEW Academy, with its hardware and software tools, empowers the Institute to implement this belief and work on algorithm engineering.
