Rapid developments in science require the application of new technologies in the field of education, aiming at changing the traditional and obsolete ways of teaching, providing ground for new forms. These new forms of teaching do not replace the teacher but adapt his role from omniscient to mentor and role model for students. With the use of technological means and the teacher's contribution to the teaching of the courses, the results in learning - let alone in the understanding of specialty courses- can be even more remarkable and bring about changes and perspectives for new approaches in the field of education. The aim of this survey was to investigate the use of new technologies by teachers today in the teaching of specialty courses and to what extent this implementation can improve the learning process. The results of the research show that our sample not only has a positive attitude towards the use of new forms of technology in the teaching of specialty courses but also seems to understand the benefits that arise from their use for the teachers themselves, for students, and the whole educational process.
