Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become a part of every human's life. Proper usage of ICT devices helps for the growth of the society and in turn the country. Therefore it is in the hands of the group of people, the professionals, who are very intimate and lay a platform for such growth. This study is one of such kind with sample (n=160) consisting of professional students, i. e. student teachers in the field of Education and Physical Education. The findings of the study reveal that male students possess better ICT skills. Rural students were found to be competent than their urban counterparts in the use of ICT and family income and educational qualification of parents also had a significant influence on the ICT competence level of students.
