Estate Surveying and Valuation is one of the professions in the built environment that requires the use and application of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the various areas of its practice. Such ICT devices and applications include computers, networks, hardware, software, satellite and so on. This paper sets to examine the extent to which Estate Surveyors and Valuers apply ICT in performing their professional tasks so as to assess its contribution to their practice. A 5-point Likert scale structured questionnaire was administered to Estate Surveyors and Valuers both in the public and private practice in Ogun State. Relative Importance Index (RII) was used to analyse the data obtained from the survey. The study shows that the estate surveyors and valuers are aware of the existence of the various ICT applications and devices but have not been using them effectively to promote their practice. They however, ascribed their inability to use it to poor level of training. The study concluded that there is need for improvement in the curriculum of various educational and professional institutions involved in the training of Estate Management Students across the country. Regular intraining on the use of ICT applications and devices was also suggested as a means of improving the ICT knowledge of the Estate Surveyors and Valuers.
