LabVIEW Modules Delivered by the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering


The Electrical and Electronics department of CIT provides students with the opportunity to develop their LabVIEW programming skills at all levels. We offer a range of courses designed to develop the student’s programming skills from fundamental concepts all the way up to creating web-based solutions, capable of solving real-world engineering problems. Students are exposed to fundamental programming concepts using a project based learning format.

In addition to fundamental programming skills, the LabVIEW modules cover robotic theory, data acquisition, instrumentation and vision systems. The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at CIT is an accredited National Instruments LabVIEW academy. This means that our courses prepare students for the Certified LabVIEW Associated Developer (CLAD) certification exam which they can take at CIT.

Modules delivered by our department

LabVIEW is a graphical programming language originally designed for test, measurement, and control applications. We deliver three LabVIEW related modules, Introduction to Mobile Robotics, LabVIEW Visual Programming and Advanced LabVIEW Visual Programming.

Introduction to Mobile Robotics

NFQ Level: Fundamental, Year 2, Semester 1:

  • Real-world engineering using fundamental robotics concepts
  • LEGO NXT robots programmed using LabVIEW
  • No previous experience LabVIEW
  • Finishes with a state-machine-based solution that monitors sensors and provides motor control

LabVIEW Visual Programming
NFQ Level: Intermediate, Year 3, Semester 1:
  • A comprehensive introduction to LabVIEW programming
  • Focus on PC-based data acquisition applications

Students are exposed to some of the more advanced features of the LabVIEW package. The course is intended to supply the student with skills enabling them to produce applications capable of solving problems commonly encountered in modern geographically-distributed enterprises and/or working environments.

Advanced LabVIEW Visual Programming
NFQ Level: Advanced, Year 4, Semester 1:
  • Design patterns
  • Embedded systems
  • s-RIO / c-RIO
  • Distributed application development
  • Web-based applications
  • Databases
  • Process control/ monitoring
  • Vision Systems
  • Introduction to vision concepts/ industrial applications
Our goal is to supply the modern engineering student with the practical and up to date skills required for the 21st century work environment
