With an objective of Quality Education, ONGC Mahila Samiti led by Mrs. Shobhana Wahi started a Vocational Center in 1987 which in due course of time developed into a full-fledged Design Institute where the courses of Fashion Design, Textile Design and Garment Technology are running. These courses are recognized by All India Council of Technical Education and Affiliated to Uttarakhand Board of Technical Education, Roorkee.

The Institute is located within ONGC Campus. Initially land, building and other infrastructure was provided by ONGC. The Institute was working for the Women Empowerment since regime. Now after completing a journey of 35 years in serving for the noble cause of Women Empowerment.

Subsequently a need was felt to provide Higher Education in the field which we are already specializing like Fashion Design and the courses which are in demand in the market like Bachelor of Journalism and Mass Communication, B.Com and B.Sc. (IT) etc. Hence the concept of HIDT was conceived.
