Hi, I’m Tom McQuillan, a chartered engineer specialising in LabVIEW software development.
I primarily work as a software engineer, creating microscopy software in LabVIEW. In addition, regularly teach LabVIEW courses across Europe as a Certified Professional Instructor for NI (the inventors of LabVIEW). This has led to my enthusiasm presenting at, and organising, international LabVIEW conferences. I also run my own LabVIEW YouTube channel – Tom’s LabVIEW Adventure.
My journey with LabVIEW started whilst working for a test and measurement company. This role included developing test systems using LabVIEW and NI hardware for the defence, aerospace and automotive industries.
During my studies at university, I worked for a software contractor, where I helped develop software frameworks and bespoke desktop and embedded software applications.
After graduating with a Masters’ degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with distinction, my experience well equipped me for my role at NI, where I gained Certified LabVIEW Architect status (the highest LabVIEW certification available), taught LabVIEW courses and supported customers creating LabVIEW applications. This led to my current role, writing software for the neuroscience industry.
