Graphical Programming Tools for Electrical Engineering Higher Education

Eduard Lunca, Silviu Ursache, Oana Neacsu


As the engineering education and computer technologies for industry merge, the opportunities for teaching and learning will also expand. In such context, a large number of academic courses that teach electrical engineering concepts have incorporated the graphical programming as educational tool for student use. The current paper discuses some of the most popular graphical programming packages, identifies two alternative solutions and shows how the virtual instrumentation approach pioneered by LabVIEW may enhance the electrical engineering curricula.
