CVN (Columbia Video Network) makes select SEAS graduate courses available to off-campus students in the autumn (September–December) and spring (January–May) terms. CVN administrators work closely with faculty representatives from each department to select the classes that best fit the needs of new and continuing students around the world. During the summer session (and, occasionally, the autumn and spring terms), the CVN program makes pretaped courses available. Based on a survey of student needs and interests, CVN draws upon recently taped courses to offer a complete schedule of classes on an accelerated calendar in the summer session (June–August).
CVN currently offers courses leading to an M.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering. Details can be found on the CVN Web site.
