Sažetak
The end of the twentieth and the beginning of the twenty-first century are marked by developments in science which is considered to be the basis of the greatest quantitative and qualitative changes in history. We are witnesses to great benefits to mankind stemming from contemporary engineering development. Mechanization, automation and computerization of production processes have lessened the hazards to human physical integrity, but in spite of that, man's psychic and moral integrity in his working environment has been increasingly endangered. Engineering is an important and learned profession, which has a direct and vital impact on the quality of life for all people. Accordingly, engineers must provide their services on the basis of honesty, impartiality, fairness, and equity, and must be dedicated to the protection of public health, safety, and welfare. Engineering failures are often found to stem from deficiencies in engineering ethics, and engineers are responsible for their actions to the engineering community, to political and societal institutions as well as to their employers, customers, and technology users. Engineers need to be aware of ethics as they make choices during their professional practice. Clear understanding of engineering ethics is needed like never before, because when things go wrong, there is always an ethical dimension.
