Students today need to have computer knowledge and skills to enable them perform their task at school and their jobs. This presents a challenge to universities on how to provide computer education to their students. This challenge is even more critical for students in developing countries. Few studies have been done on attitude of students’ use of computers in a university environment using a well-grounded technology acceptance mode. The purpose of this study is to find the factors that influence student attitude in the acceptance and use of computers in tertiary institutions in emerging economies using the Theory of Planned Behavior Model.
