About us

Test, measurement and control systems can come at a high price. For 40 years, National Instruments (NI) has worked with engineers and scientists to measure and control the world around us. Through these pursuits, NI customers have brought hundreds of thousands of products to market, overcome innumerable technological roadblocks, and engineered a better life for us all. Our customer base of over 35,000 global companies is testament to the fact that NI helps scientists and engineers solve their greatest challenges.
If you can turn it on, connect it, drive it, or launch it, chances are NI technology helped make it happen.

Our 24-month Engineering Leadership Programme (ELP) will give you the opportunity to advance your technical expertise whilst communicating and collaborating with people from a variety of different scientific and engineering backgrounds.

  • The Applications Engineering department is responsible for supporting our Northern European Region customers - whose backgrounds cover all kinds of engineering and scientific disciplines - in their use of National Instruments (NI) products. Our ELP is also responsible for delivering customer education classes and presenting at seminars on the core NI product portfolio, both at the office and customer locations.

  • Business applications of technical knowledge: Geo Account Manager or Field Marketing Engineer.
  • Technical applications of NI products in industry: Staff Application Engineer.
