Abstract(s)In this work we describe and characterize the student’s allocation satisfaction in the Portuguese public higher education system through the students' point of view, namely, in the academic engineering programs, extending previous studies of the author’s team. We compare the ratio provided by the Portuguese Education Ministry through the Institutions' point of view, demand satisfaction index with the ratio proposed, applicant’s satisfaction index, for the so called post-Bologna period. The data used in this paper covers the years from 2007 to 2013, provided by the Portuguese Education Institute. Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis tests were performed in order to assess whether there are significant differences between the ratios.
