Modern technologies continuously change humans and their relation­ship with the environment. They can achieve a lot in the field of chemical eng­ineering, thereby improving and enhancing the quality of human life, but on the other hand, technologies can be used to destroy human lives. Technical and tech­nological culture (hereinafter referred to as TTC) is the entirety of social achievements in the field of technical and technological sciences and their application, as well as of the all knowledge and skills needed to understand the achievements, use them correctly, transfer them to the younger generation and create new values in this field. This paper will present a pilot study aimed to examine the attitudes and beliefs of engineers, Technological (chemical eng­ineer­ing) and Technical faculties, regarding the development of TTC and to determine socio-demographic factors that may influence its development. The research was conducted in Serbia and Croatia. The results indicate that the most important aspects of TTC are: the development of awareness of sustain­able development, the impact on environmental protection, etc. The respond­ents recognized the ethical challenges we face today, the need for the education of young engineers and the promotion of TTC in the media and professional public.
