LabVIEW Boot Camp for Summer 2017 (sponsored by CAEN)

The LabVIEW Boot Camp is a compressed LabVIEW Core 1 and Core 2 training. Designed specifically for academic researchers, educators, and graduate students, this free, five-day hands-on course teaches you a basic understanding of coding with LabVIEW as well as the fundamental skills needed to develop applications using the state machine design pattern to process, display, and store real-world data and programmatically control a user interface. At the end of the course, you are given the opportunity to prepare for and take the Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) exam, a globally recognized entry-level certification exam for free.

The training will be held July 17 through 21 in the IOE Building, and is sponsored by CAEN. Space is limited, so registration is required to attend.

COMSOL Multiphysics workshop at U-M on March 15 (sponsored by CAEN)

On March 15, COMSOL will give a free, all-day multiphysics modeling workshop at the University of Michigan, sponsored by CAEN. At this extended workshop, attendees will get hands-on experience with COMSOL Multiphysics and the Application Builder, and will have the chance to set up and solve a simulation through a hands-on exercise guided by a COMSOL expert.

Who should attend? Anyone interested in simulating and optimizing engineering phenomena based on PDEs, such as structural mechanics, heat transfer, electromagnetics, fluid flows, etc. Applications of the software are found in virtually every area of science and engineering. You will leave with new skills to work on your own applications using your free, two-week COMSOL trial.

Seating is limited, so registration is required. Details about the session, time, and location are available at:

Simulink & Raspberry Pi workshop at U-M, sponsored by CAEN

Please join us October 27 for a complimentary hands-on workshop on using Raspberry Pi as a target platform. All U-M faculty, staff, researchers, and students are welcome. Registration is required to attend.

Participants in this session will develop, simulate, and test custom algorithms, and deploy them on a Raspberry Pi platform from within the Simulink environment. Lab modules will include examples of video and image processing: from simple video in/out handling, to more sophisticated processing such as object recognition and edge detection.

Simulink and Stateflow workshop at U-M, sponsored by CAEN

Please join us for an “Introduction to Simulink and Stateflow for Model-Based Design” hands-on workshop. All University of Michigan faculty, staff, researchers and students are all welcome to attend.

Two sessions will be held on Wednesday, September 30 (9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.). Each session is a 3-hour hands-on Simulink and Stateflow training event. Each attendee will have the opportunity to build a model from scratch and improve the model throughout the session. In this session, you will learn how to model dynamic systems and integrate feedback control through a series of demonstrations to model a dynamical system and a feedback controller using a range of Simulink constructs and checking the results at each step through simulation.

Registration is required to attend; please register for only one session. To register and view a complete description of the session, visit:
