Abstract: 

This paper is based on the theoretical framework of Peter Berger, who uses phenomenological sociology to explain changes occurring to the institution of religion, to religiosity and religious attitudes in transitioning nations. Parallel to the expansion of modern institutions in developing nations, not only the relation between the institution of religion and other institutions changes but consciousness clusters rebated to modern institutions also undergo change. In this paper religiosity and religious attitudes of students of Amirkabir University of Technology as one of most important modern consciousness carriers (scientific worldview, engineering mentality) has been measured. The empirical data indicate that while religious beliefs of students are strong, and while their practice and individual involvement in religious rituals stand at a mid level, their practice and social involvement in religious rituals is low. The results are indicative of a tendency among the students towards private religion, a selective approach to religion, and an inclination towards religious pluralism. Therefore one might say that the empirical data confirm points mentioned in theoretical framework.
