The institute has the right, as all institutes of higher learning, to establish its own regulations and organs, elected by Professors and Students. This foresees autonomy in the choice of professors, the creation of syllabi, research and the development of initiatives connecting the institute to industries and bodies.

The ISIA is governed by a board of directors with financial responsibilities and by an Academic Council responsible for teaching and research.

The Institute is represented by a President selected by the Academic Council, as proposed by the Ministry for Education, governed by a Director elected by Professors.
