National Instruments Celebrates Engineers Week

From making alternative energy more economical to engineering better medicines, engineers and scientists are the minds behind the innovations that power our cities, keep us healthy and sustain our planet.

Today’s world is a connected one -- with more sensing, intelligence and wireless capabilities, engineers can acquire and analyze data more rapidly and therefore, have a tremendous opportunity to gain valuable insights and discover what will drive the technological advancements of tomorrow. This opportunity also presents us with a very important question -- with systems becoming more intelligent, more connected, and more complex -- will the next generation of engineers be adequately equipped to solve tomorrow’s problems?

NI has helped engineers and scientists gain instrumental insight into the world’s greatest engineering challenges and efficiently build breakthrough solutions with a performance-modular platform based approach. It’s our mission to provide researchers with the leading-edge technologies to innovate and prototype; educators with attainable tools to demonstrate concepts and robust curricula to effectively teach; and importantly, students with engaging hands-on learning experiences and the inspiration to pursue careers in math and science.


Therefore, NI technologies are found in research labs, university lecture halls and even kindergarten classrooms around the world. Over the years, I’ve been fortunate enough to witness university student design groups, high school robotics clubs, and advanced researchers solve complex problems and design incredible systems. The common thread I see is the desire and ability of all ages to use instrumentation for quick discovery and fast design. I’m thrilled that NI can be a part of thousands of innovative engineering projects and technological discoveries.

Engineers Week is a week that celebrates how engineers make a difference in our world and acknowledges the important role engineers play in improving society and our quality of life. NI recognizes the need for skilled engineers and inspiring today’s students to become the innovators of tomorrow.

See some of the impressive work students and researchers are tackling below and join the conversation by following NI on Twitter, Facebook and our new Tumblr page to see what news we have in store for the rest of the week.
