UTSI SETS INTERMEDIATE LABVIEW COURSE FOR SCIENTISTS, ENGINEERS MARCH 28-30

A short course designed to help engineers and scientists apply a “LabVIEW” computer program to research problems is scheduled for March 28-30 at The University of Tennessee Space Institute.

Dr. Brad Winkleman is instructor for “Intermediate LabVIEW,” which Director Becky Stines says is a continuation of UTSI’s introductory course, which introduced fundamentals of data flow programming techniques, front panel creation, and block diagram construction.

Main topics of the three-day intermediate course include array manipulation, file operations, graphic and chart operation, dynamic front panel manipulation via property nodes, and digital signal processing.

“Dr. Winkleman has extensive experience in applying LabVIEW to experimental systems,” Stines said. “He has applied LabVIEW’s unique capabilities to characterizing and controlling a variety of laboratory devices and experiments. These have included combustion systems, two phase flows, internal air and water flows, electron beam destruction, and various other possibilities.”

Fee for the course is $995. Reservations may be made by contacting Stines at UTSI’s Office of Continuing Education. Her address is MS 15, The University of Tennessee Space Institute, B.H. Goethert Parkway, Tullahoma, Tenn., 37388-8897. She may be reached toll-free by dialing 888 822-8874, Ext. 277 or at (931) 393-7276. Her fax number is (931) 393-7327. She suggests early registration.
