Therefore, to cope up with an issue, the study explores the concept of information and communication technology (ICT)-based education system to the protection of the environment as well as improving present education system itself from students' perspective. A total of 356 usable responses was gathered from engineering, management, and computer application students of four main cities of Madhya Pradesh, India. The AMOS 22.0 and SmartPLS 3.0 statistical programs were used for measurement validation and to test the structural model. The study identified the key constructs within this domain and indicated that all the paths are significant which implies that ICT-based education system significantly contributes to protect the environment and improve the present education system. Therefore, the findings of the study would help policymakers and academicians.
