- It is important to note that the Webometrics rankings influence on the evaluation of the university in the world rankings of higher education institutions and the Times Higher Education and QS, so the development of online resources today is one of the strategic objectives for our University.

Webometrics ranking criteria reflect not only the technology and the scale of its own website, but also the reputation of the university, as the estimated criteria are publication activity of University staff and citing in the Internet. Therefore, interested parties and applicants may use this ranking to compare universities activity.

Today, this rating is very authoritative, besides the results of its more dynamic than that of other academic rankings, as they instantly recognized the results of the university in the virtual space.

VSUES tends to create new connections, informal communication between scientists and the implementation of innovations by sharing experiences and creative collaboration.
