The aim of this study is to investigate the relation between the Egyptian Industrial Education Teachers' demographic characteristics and their perceived computer self-efficacy. The target population of the study was in-service teachers at Industrial Secondary Schools. Thus, participants consisted of 66 in-service teachers (architecture specialists) in Desouk and Foh industrial secondary schools (Kafr El-Sheikh Governorate), and Badr Industrial Schools (Assiut Governorate), Egypt. The “Perceived Computer Self-Efficacy” scale developed by Askar and Umay (DTAE) was used for collecting data. To accomplish the research objectives, standard deviation, average, ANOVA, and Post-Hoc Tukey HSD tests were used in data analysis. The statistical significance level was accepted as .05 in the study. Results show that there is a significant difference in teachers' age, computer experience level, computer training level and graduation college according to the perceived computer self-efficacy. Also, there is no significant difference among those in-service teachers' perceived computer self-efficacy according to their major.

Key words: Perceived computer self-efficacy, industrial education teachers.
