The proposed performance indicators include indicators that characterize both the scientific and educational activities of the division. Among the indicators of the effectiveness of integrated and innovative structures of the university selected publication activity, the funding of scientific research and development, a number of research projects, the level of capitalization of scientific research and/or innovation applied innovation and scientific development, the number of received patents and inventions, the average score for protection of final qualification works, the number of students, the degree of implementation of the results of final qualifying works in the business, the number of trained personnel.
