Abstract—Information and Communications Technology Self-efficacy is an essential factor in promoting technopreneurial interest and fostering technopreneurial competence. This study focuses on the impact of Information and Communications Technology Self-Efficacy on technopreneurial Intention, which technopreneurial Learning mediates. The researchers used an explanatory survey as the research method and gathered 200 selected participants from engineering students in the Philippines during COVID-19 Pandemic. The collected data was analyzed using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM). The results show that Information and Communications Technology Self Efficacy has a positive and significant effect on both technopreneurial Intention and technopreneurial Learning. Additionally, this study established that technopreneurial Learning mediates the relationship between Information and Communications Technology Self Efficacy and technopreneurship Intention. The result indicates that boosting Information and Communications Technology Self-Efficacy and technopreneurship Intention Learning will be more successful in improving technopreneurship Intention.

Index Terms—ICT, self-efficacy, structural equation modeling technopreneurial intention, technopreneurial learning.
