Our chair offers new seminars on web scraping in the summer term 2024. The hands-on seminars offers an opportunity to learn how to scrape data from websites in R. During the first part of the semester, students will teach each other the necessary tools and skills by means of seminar presentations of roughly 35 minutes. During the second part of the semester, students implement a web scraper for a project of their choice. Bachelor students can register for the “Seminar: Web Scraping“, Master students for the “Seminar: Web Scraping for Business and Economics“.

There are still a few topics available: spontaneous students are welcome to register by April 1.
