Question 2: What is NI's stance in providing educators and students with tools to enable hands-on learning?

Question 3: NI has had a long standing presence supporting Circuits and Measurements courses.  In recent years, NI has also expanded its reach to support areas in Controls, Embedded and Student Design, and RF/Wireless Communications.  Explain.

Question 4: What advice does NI have for ECE students preparing to enter the work force?  What skill sets does NI look for in your college hires?

Question 5: 

"Learn before doing” has been the dominant approach to engineering education for many years, with a typical curriculum requiring 1-2 years of general math and science before delving into discipline-specific courses.  Can technology make engineering concepts more accessible to enable “learn by doing,” thus inspiring students and improving student retention in engineering?
