About the Course:

The purpose of this course is to expose students to methods and techniques used in LabVIEW programming.  This course aims to provide students with the skills necessary to perform basic tasks in LabVIEW, including those required for ME 107A, ME 135, Physics 111 (Advanced Lab), and industry.  The LabVIEW programming environment has become an industry standard, especially in the areas of data acquisition and instrument control, making it important for students to learn how to best utilize LabVIEW and its programming environment.  LabVIEW makes GUI development, instrument communication, and data logging easier and more efficient.  Learning how to program in LabVIEW will provide students with benefits in future classes, internships, and eventually be a useful skill in the work place.  In this class students will become familiar with graphical programming basics, file input/output, signal generation and processing, data acquisition, and communication protocols.  At the end of this course students will be expected to have the ability to write high-level LabVIEW programs, such as those used in autonomous controllers, or instrument data acquisition and analysis.

How to Enroll:

Because this class is lab based and requires software, enrollment is limited to about 30 students.  Upon enrolling you will need to get key card access to Etcheverry in order to use the computers after hours.
