One of the most stressful tasks of today’s classroom teachers is how to effectively integrate technology in meeting 21st century demands. This requires not only competence in ICT but also updated technologies to be used and a positive attitude towards this endeavor. This study aimed to assess the level of technopedagogical competence of the 79 faculty members of the University of Eastern Philippines and to identify their attitudes toward teaching with a computer.  A descriptive- correlational method supplemented by interview was employed to determine specifically the profile of the respondents in terms of sex, age, number of trainings relevant to computer/ICT, ownership of computer/laptop, and attitude towards teaching with computers. The sample respondents were identified using the Slovin Formula employing stratified random sampling. Frequency counts, percentages, T-test: Two-sample, ANOVA single factor, and multiple regressions were used to measure the data gathered. Results showed that the majority of the respondents are in the Middle Ages from 40 to 50 years old, mostly female, and owned computer/laptop, but don’t have proper training related to Computer/ICT.  The Respondents indicated a favorable attitude towards ICT and showed high technopedagogical competence.  Among the different variables in the profile, age and number of trainings displayed a significant relationship with the technopedadogical competence. Likewise, the same variables indicated a significantly different means in their technological competence.
