The University of Tulsa Integrates Origin Data Analysis and Graphing Software into its Physics Instrumentation Lab Course

Origin provides Department of Physics and Engineering Physics students at TU with hands-on experience in data analysis, scientific programming and system behavior simulation

Northampton, Mass.–March 12, 2013 OriginLab, a leading publisher of data analysis and graphing software, today announced that The University of Tulsa Department of Physics and Engineering Physics has integrated Origin software into its physics instrumentation lab course. The department uses Origin software to help students develop data analysis and presentation skills that will benefit them in their professional engineering and research careers. Incorporating Origin helps students better understand and practice data analysis, a critical step between collecting data and reporting results.

Dr. Alexei Grigoriev, assistant professor in TU’s Department of Physics and Engineering Physics, has used Origin for years in his research in experimental condensed matter physics. He recently incorporated the graphing and data analysis software into his lab course to teach students the basics of scientific programming, experimental data fitting, system behavior simulation, and data presentation all in one environment.

“Origin allows our students to integrate three major components of engineering and research – data collection, analysis and reporting – in a single environment,” says Dr. Grigoriev. “I don’t know any other software that would allow such a high degree of integration while remaining a very intuitive, robust and flexible solution. By giving students hands-on experiences with Origin, The University of Tulsa is better preparing them for research and data presentation in their graduate and professional careers.”

“We are thrilled that Dr. Grigoriev is using Origin to help train his students on data presentation and research,” said Dr. C.P. Yang, OriginLab’s founder and CEO. “At OriginLab, we highly appreciate the support and feedback we receive from the academic community, and we are always looking for ways to improve Origin to better meet the needs of future scientists and engineers.”
