VTI parallels its focus on industrial test and measurement solutions with a special
focus on education institutions. VTI strongly believes in academic and industry
partnerships to solve current world challenges by:
- Preparing students for a career in industry
- Providing state of the art tools and cutting edge technologies to research centers
- Packaging and marketing university developed products and IP by our worldwide network
- Enabling collaborations between universities internationally and also Industry
Our partnerships with leading engineering schools and universities have resulted in the
definition of industry focused curriculum that prepares students with real world problem
solving techniques and experience. Laboratory use of industry de-facto standard instrumentation
and software solutions develop confidence in a wide range of application areas including modal
analysis, acoustics, vibration, structural fatigue, condition and health monitoring, general
measurement techniques and best practices, as well as electronic test.
From Education to Industry
- University of Cincinnati
- Cal Poly Aerospace
- Korea Aerospace Institute
- Lawrence Livermore
- University of Texas
- University of Michigan
- Purdue University
- UT Applied Research
- U.S. Naval Academy
- Indian Institute of Science
VTI partners with education institutions to provide the tools necessary to train
young engineers with the skills and knowledge to be productive employees in industry.
These educational centers of excellence also provide educational institutions with a
valuable source of revenue when teamed up with industry, helping to solve today’s problems
and develop tomorrows solutions.
Students who have been trained using the latest techniques on VTI hardware garner
skills that make them highly regarded in industry and are hired into some of the most
demanding industry occupations worldwide. Many of the university students have become
leaders in industry at locations like NASA, BMW, Ford Motor Company, and many more,
leveraging the skills and experience gained at the university.
Potential Research Grants and Industry collaboration
Collaboration between academia and industry starts with proper tools and training for
the students and staff. Experience has shown that creative learning environments with the
right tools attract funding from outside government entities and industry to provide a
resource that generates revenue for the university and added experience for its students.

Academic Engineering Suites
The collaborative relationships we have established with universities and research
institutions around the globe focus on meeting both present and emerging test challenges.
We are committed to making an ongoing contribution to academia by stimulating education and
research in areas of importance to the next generation of engineers.
VTI has developed a series of academic engineering suites specifically targeting college and
university engineering educators, researchers, and students. These integrated hardware and software
materials and training suites have been carefully developed to:
- Aid university lecturers in teaching labs
- Provide students with early exposure to industry de-facto standard instruments and software
- Aid institutional Research and Development and Innovation projects
The following suites are currently available:
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)
- Advanced Electronic Automation Suite
- Advanced Physical Measurement and Analysis Suite
- Advanced Structural Dynamics Test Suite
- Advanced Embedded Design and Data Analysis Suite
- Practical RF and Communications Suite
