1 min read

element14, an Avnet Community, along with NI have launched a new educational programme, “A Beginner’s Course in LabVIEW and Test Automation.”

This course aims to equip element14 Community members with the skills required in LabVIEW programming and automated testing, enabling them to build cutting-edge projects.

As an electronics community, element14 is dedicated to empowering its members and the work of an engineer extends far beyond the realm of innovation and design, and includes the process of validating, verifying, debugging, and testing new products. This programme is intended to introduce community members to automated testing, an essential skill for engineers involved in new product development.

LabVIEW is a widely used graphical programming environment that facilitates the development of automated research, validation, and production test systems. By enrolling in the programme participants will gain a deep understanding of LabVIEW and have the opportunity to create their own LabVIEW automated test projects.

Commenting Dianne Kibbey, Global Head of Community and Social Media for element14, said, "LabVIEW and test automation are indispensable skills for modern engineers, and we believe this course will significantly benefit our members in their professional pursuits."

Open to all element14 Community members, it provides a user-friendly learning experience. As part of the course there are a range of prizes on offer. Participants need to engage in the course material, which includes reading lessons, completing quizzes, and successfully executing the final test automation project using the LabVIEW Community Edition.

Applications for the programme are now open and will be accepted until September 8. On September 15, the chosen participants will be announced, marking the commencement of the challenge.

Quizzes must be completed by October 5, and project blogs are due by October 21. Winners of the programme will be unveiled in November 2023.

The grand prize winner will receive the LabVIEW Base Edition Software and the Multicomp Pro MP720011 US Digital Oscilloscope. Additionally, the runner-up will be awarded the LabVIEW Base Edition Software and the Multicomp Pro MP730424 EU-UK Digital Multimeter Bench. All challengers will receive a finisher prize, the Multicomp Pro’s MP700393 4PCE ESD Electronics Cutter Kit.
