The Electronics Engineering Lab is based on the NI ELVIS platform and the NI LabVIEW graphical programming software. The Lab allows students to assemble and investigate electronic circuits on the breadboard workbench of the system with the use of specially developed electronics components. The circuits to be assembled are presented on respective front panels of each hands-on project, as well as in the courseware manual.

Corresponding sections of the manual are also included in laboratory software so that a student may refresh his memory on appropriate theoretical materials, without interrupting practical work in the laboratory.
