Abstract: This article belongs to a study to portray the university students of the generation Z, particularly those who did not follow technological courses. The widespread idea que these young people are experts in technology may not be correct. Digital natives live surrounded by technology, use technology to communicate and to have fun, but many of them show a lack of knowledge of some tools, including MsOffice. These tools prove to be essential during their academic life and their future working life. This article presents results from two surveys: the initial investigation on computer equipment possessed, social networks used, kind of applications access, knowledge of MsOffice tools; the second survey on MsOffice tools, was completed at the end of the course, in which were not taught but were necessary for the final work preparation and presentation. In Portugal there is a curriculum in secondary education but not all students were included. What we want is to know the knowledge that students have when they go to university and the knowledge they need to have to go to the labor market.
