Abstract: Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a buzz word in each and every walk of life. Everything nowadays is amalgamated with the proficient use of ICT and not surprisingly the engineering teaching institutes are one among them. It is the need of the time that the engineering faculties should be well-equipped with the ICT literacy. ICT literacy can depend on a number of variables and age; an important demographic variable no doubt can affect the faculties ICT Literacy (knowledge, access and competence). In the meantime, being ICT literate is not sufficient for a knowledge intensive sector like engineering institutes, it is also how well the faculties share this knowledge in the organization with other stakeholders. In this backdrop this study is a descriptive study with an objective to know the relationship of age with the ICT literacy and Knowledge Sharing (KS) behaviour of the faculties teaching in the engineering institutes. A total sample size of 230 is collected from the five eastern states of India, through online convenience sampling method. The descriptive and correlational analysis showed that although age has significant and positive relationship with knowledge of ICT but it doesn’t have any significant relationship with the ICT literacy and KS behaviour in the institutes.
