The purpose of this article is to analyze and identify the type of social and cultural aspects that can be included during the teaching of a technical course such as Analytical Chemistry. To this end, a comparative analysis of the Analytical Chemistry curriculum for the Chemical Engineering major in five universities, four from Argentina and one from Spain, was done. Interviews to professors and bibliographic material provided by them were used in the study. From the analysis, four main aspects are included in the courses: chemical analysis, sampling criteria and the interrelation science-technology-society-environment and social aspects. The programs of analytical chemistry courses do not include this aspects and it is necessary to include aspects related to the relation science-technology-society-environment to achieve an appropriate formation of the future chemical engineers
