Technology as such creates new habits and new ways of communicating and understanding. Ethical impact of technology is greater than normally reflected in engineering education. The aim of the teaching in ethics has been to develop a personal sense of responsibility and moral judgement in respect of conflicting perceptions / different angles. In this paper we will describe our experience at Technical University of Denmark concerning teaching Professionals Skills and Attitudes in Personal and Technology Ethics and how it can be implemented in the Design-Build Courses at Technical University of Denmark.
