MPI Education Program


Education plays a critical role in the economic success of any country or society. As a result universities are facing enormous pressure to ensure that every procurement decision meets the needs of not just today’s students, but tomorrow’s.


Current trends dictate that universities seek the most advanced and leading edge technologies to meet the demands of both current and advanced educational programs.

Conversely universities, government institutes and research centers are increasingly faced with restricted and “one time” budgets. These budget criteria mandate a wide variety of quickly, complete configured solutions.



MPI understands the needs of the educational market and responds by:

  • Designing dedicated, application specific probe systems
  • Designing unique and cost effective upgrade paths
  • Introducing the special IMPACT™ program to serve the education markets
