Abstract: Nowadays, higher education providing institutions depend upon Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for all purposes like teaching, administration, learning and other research related works. ICT is found to be a major resource for bringing competitive growth for an organization. In general, the use of ICT in higher education institution plays a vital role in providing modern learning approaches. Further, the utilization of data mining in ICT can predict the performance of students and offer a way to improve it. This paper identifies the usage of ICTs among higher graduates and the impact of parameters such as gender, area of interest as well as name of the university. In addition, data mining based ranking algorithm is introduced in order to analyze the performance of students. The evaluation results show that the use of ICT in higher education provides technological improvements and these enhancements are associated with factors such as gender, area of interest as well as university. Moreover, the ranking algorithm can easily evaluate the ICT based performance of higher education institutions.
