As Japan faces the challenge of a declining engineering population, educators in engineering must attract, develop, and produce engineers who are ready for innovation and global cooperation in order to maintain the country’ s technical advantage. A key approach to engineering education that helps these requirements is virtual instrumentation, the use of customizable software and modular hardware to create user-defined measurement systems. Made productive by a graphical programming environment called LabVIEW, virtual instrumentation provides an open and common platform on which engineers and engineering educators can design experiments, share results, and collaborate with others on projects in laboratory experimentation, research, and design. In this paper, we will examine a few examples of virtual instrumentation in engineering education and international cooperation as well as study the tools that make them possible..
