Position in curriculum

How courses are displayed in the curriculum depends on how the degree program and the respective modules are modeled. Courses and exams of a particular module are linked (as so-called course nodes or exam nodes). Each module can be integrated into any number of degree programs and theoretically at any position.

TUMonline only displays the information that was entered during the configuration of the degree program. If a specific course is missing in a degree program, there are essentially three possible reasons for it:

  • The course is part of a module that is not integrated into every degree program
  • The course belongs to several modules, but is not linked to all modules
  • The course belongs to several modules, but not all of the modules are integrated into the degree program

For details about the configuration of modules and degree programs please contact the academic programs office of your school or department.

Online documents and learning material

Click on the course title to obtain details about a specific course. A detailed view will open including information regarding the weekly lecture hours, lecturer(s), course content, dates, registration and online documents:

  • If documents for the course have been prepared, they will be linked in the “Online documents” section.
  • If there are documents for individual lectures, you can find them as part of the information under “Scheduled dates”.
  • For courses using the Moodle learning platform, the link “eLearning course” in the “Online documents” section directly leads to the Moodle course.

Additional information about the online documents and learning material are available on the Course material page.
