NI & IEEE join hands in India to improve graphical system design

Bangalore,  23rd July 23, 2015:  Platform-based  test and measurement and virtual instrumentation   specialist – National Instruments  (NI) -- has  announced  a partnership ( with  the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)  to enable professional skill development programmes which will  address the need for proficient engineers for the evolving Indian high tech industry. These programs will leverage graphical system design platforms to accelerate productivity, innovation and discovery.
As a part of the MoU, NI India and IEEE India will involve in activities such as conferences, technical workshops, trainings and joint certificate programs for individuals and companies in industry, government and academia.
The outcome of these activities will be trained manpower who are certified to a level of proficiency in building test, measurement and control systems with a focus on RF (Radio Frequency) and embedded systems using the graphical system design tools. This skill development initiative will benefit industry, government organizations, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and research organizations as they gear up towards the “Make in India” initiative.
Says Jayaram Pillai, Managing Director, National Instruments India, Russia and Arabia:“Coming together of IEEE and NI ensures immense value for skill development within the engineering and scientific community.  This partnership will strive towards developing skills in Graphical System Design, hence benefiting the technology leaders in Industry, Government and Academia in India”
Adds Harish Mysore, Director, IEEE India:“We are happy to be partnering with NI in India. This is in line with IEEE’s vision for India in technical education and skills development which is the need of the hour. This relationship will further strengthen IEEE’s focus in core engineering and emerging technology domains in providing latest tools and technology training to the engineering community in India.”
