Philippines' University of San Carlos (USC) and National Instruments (NI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to establish the first LabVIEW Academy in Central Visayas region.
The LabVIEW is a graphical programming environment which allows users to visualise, create, and code engineering systems. In line, the LabVIEW Academy programme provides educators with curriculum tool and solutions to teach students how to use NI LabVIEW System design software.
The LabVIEW Academy at USC aims to promote more LabVIEW trained and certified developers and engineers to support the local electronics and electrical engineering industry. Under the partnership, the university will have an access to LabVIEW Academic Software Teaching Licenses and support LabVIEW-certified instructors in conducting courses using LabVIEW.
"[The LabVIEW Academy] can only enhance USC's commitment to produce engineers whose mission is to address urgent human issues (Devotio) through ethical means (Virtus) based on solid training and skillful ingenuity (Scientia)," said Fr. Dionisio Miranda, SVD, President of University of San Carlos, in a press release.
