Inactive Nodes in the Curriculum Structure of Your Degree Programme

The curriculum structure in the view My Degree Programme lists the individual modules of your degree programme as specified by the subject-specific annotations to your exam regulations. Each element of the curriculum structure is called a node. The following table explains the different node types.

Node Type Abbreviation Symbol Definition
Rule Node
(Object)                 
RKN Rule nodes serve to depict the basic structure of the SPO-version.

Examples:
  • The rule nodes group the structure into sub-trees, that in turn group compulsory subjects, elective subjects or compulsory elective subjects
  • Main nodes of sub-trees that depict main and minor subjects
 
Module Node
(Object)          
MKN Main node of the “module trees”.
Exam Node
(Object)
PKN Exam nodes list courses that are available for exam or course registration.

Occasionally, exam nodes are no longer valid or will not be valid until a later date in the future. Such a node is called an inactive node in KLIPS 2.0. Inactive nodes make sure, that students are e.g. still able to register for exams in the current semester in modules that will be discontinued and can also register for new modules in the coming semester during the application phases. In addition, if the required number of elective modules or credits has been achieved in one elective field, the other modules in this field change their status to inactive nodes.

The curriculum structure in My Degree Programme hides inactive nodes. The following steps explain how to show them.

1. In order to show inactive nodes click on the button Display. A drop down menu opens. Choose Show Inact. Nodes.

2. The view refreshes. All inactive nodes are now visible when you expand the nodes of the curriculum structure. They are marked by a grey flag icon. Hover with your mouse over the “i” icon next to the node name. A tool tip will appear, explaining why a specific node is inactive.

3. To hide inactive nodes, click Hide Inact. Nodes in the drop down menu that opens when you click Display. The curriculum structure updates again and shows only active nodes.
