This study aims to determine the students’ perspective regarding the Information, Communication, and Techologies (ICT) usage in learning activity at Vocational Education and Training (VET). This research is quantitative descriptive research using survey techniques and group interviews. The population of this study included all VET students from various expertise programs in Surabaya, Indonesia. Samples were randomly selected using 218 students. The results showed that as many as 97.25% of students argued that the use of ICT was very useful in learning to find learning material and complete assignments. Students even have access to ICT every day at home and access ICT at school once a week during learning in a practical laboratory. VET students already have much competence in using ICT in learning that can be seen from their ability to operate Microsoft Office programs (such as: Ms. Word, Ms. Power Point, Ms. Excel) and use the internet to communicate and find learning materials. Therefore, it can be concluded that from the students’ perspective that ICT is very helpful in learning activity at VET. Students also feel that the use of ICT today is a demand that must be mastered to be able to compete in the world of work.
