The purpose of this research is to compare the level of competence in stereometry of the university students taught using the authors' ICT oriented learning method based on the Van Hiele model for stereometry concepts, as opposed to traditional teaching methodology. The study deals with second year undergraduate students form the Department of Civil Engineering at Piraeus University. The sample was divided into two groups. The experimental group consisted of 99 students who were taught about basic concepts of solid geometry with the support of computers based on the Van Hiele model. Also, there were 90 students in the control group which were taught with traditional methodology using a dry erase board. The study results showed that teaching and learning through ICT is an interactive process for second year university students and has a positive effect on learning solid geometry concepts using the background of the Van Hiele model.
