Abstract

© 2018 IEEE. This study is an attempt to measure the level of green computing knowledge and awareness of university students. A quantitative research approach was used in this study, and data were collected through a survey designed to this purpose. Different statistical methods were utilized including factor analysis and t-test regression to analyze the data and to test the study hypotheses. The results indicated that the level of knowledge of green computing among students is high. However, even with having that amount of knowledge, their daily practices of green computing are not adequate. The results also showed that there is a need to provide workshops and training programs to students for increasing their awareness about green computing.
