HITS is governed by a Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor and Registrar of the varsity. The Vice-chancellor is the head of the institute and oversees day-to-day administration. Each department is led by a Head of the Department (HOD).

Since the college is grouped into different categories, Dean is the head of each school.

Hindustan Institute of Technology and Science follows the credit-based system of performance evaluation and student-teacher relation, with proportional weighting of courses based on their importance. The total marks (usually out of 100) form the basis of grades, with a grade value (out of 10) assigned to a range of marks. For each semester, the students are graded by taking a weighted average of all the courses with their respective credit points. Each semester's evaluation is done independently with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) reflecting the average performance across semesters.

Accreditation[edit]

HITS has been accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) with 'A' Grade.[5]

HITS has been contributing to the society and has gained recognitions for it in many sectors.[6].
