Columbia University Graduate Engineering Distance Learning

Columbia Video Network

Welcome to Columbia Video Network (CVN), the graduate distance learning program of Columbia University's School of Engineering & Applied Science (SEAS). CVN enables distance learning students globally to pursue residency-free, fully accredited engineering courses, certifications and degree programs completely via the Internet, allowing students to view their lectures anytime and anywhere.

U.S. News & World Report has ranked our graduate degree programs at the top of the list of
Best Online Graduate Engineering Programs. We are humbled by the honor and give a special thanks to all our faculty, staff and students for making us #1.

"The CVN experience has been great. I download my lectures for the week and as I travel frequently for my work, I can view them easily in the airplane terminals of the world. It's surreal to be "sitting" in lecture at a yakitori stand in Osaka, faxing in homework from San Francisco, or emailing the T.A. about the course from Atlanta. A great and wonderful way to learn in the modern era!"

- Austin Lin, CVN Student
