NI announced the opening of its Engineering Innovation Centre (EIC) in Bangalore, India.
The engineering lab, which opened late 2021, supports NI’s customers, partners and startup companies that serve the local aerospace and defense market. The EIC will be used to train the next generation of engineers who need systems knowledge in the aerospace and defense industry.
The EIC provides customers with access to the larger aerospace and defense industry that is evolving in India, specifically in and around Bangalore, creating a more cost- and time-effective planning process through engagement with NI test experts.
Luke Schreier, senior vice president and general manager of NI’s Aerospace, Government and Defense Business Unit, said: “As a fast-growing aerospace and defense technology hub, India is the ideal place for us to strengthen our investments, bring together the test and measurement ecosystem and support the initiatives of the local community through the EIC.”
Shitendra Bhattacharya, head of sales at NI India, said: “EIC is designed to help our customers, entrepreneurs and innovators in India cocreate for the nation and leverage the state-of-the-art applications that come out of this lab to serve the globe.”
