LabVIEW (Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench) training program introduces industrial automation and guides the participants in exploring the LabVIEW environment. LabVIEW, from National Instruments, is an integrated system design platform and graphical development environment for a visual programming language. It is widely used for data acquisition, instrument control, industrial automation, measurement analysis applications, and simulation model.


LabVIEW training imparts the skills to draw you code and extend your graphical design capabilities for measurement and automation. The learning of various tools, design techniques, and ways of plotting data results in building virtual instrumentation or a prototype of a plant.

By the end of the training, you will be proficient in the following:

  • Understand the significance of control systems
  • Elucidate industrial automation covering its components and hardware classification
  • Navigate LabVIEW environment and its interface
  • Explore the available palettes, tools
  • Practice dataflow programming
  • Create wiring objects both manually and automatically
  • Build programs and handle errors
  • Experiment with different design techniques, plotting data ways, and user interface
Target audience

Freshers/professionals having strong interest in industrial automation and willing to develop applications using LabVIEW.
