NI Announces Inaugural Group of NI Elite Educators


We’re excited to announce the first group of teachers and professors selected to be part of the NI Elite Educators program. The NI Elite Educators program is a group of education professionals who constantly seek new ways to empower students, both in and out of the classroom.


NI Elite Educators are thought leaders in science and engineering education, chosen for this program because of their unique approach to teaching with NI technology. They strive to implement change and are eager to share their work with others who want to do the same. New members have the opportunity to network and collaborate with other educators and the engineering community, receive early access to NI products, and provide input into NI tool development.
