Career Services

North Carolina A&T is proud of the fact that its list of corporate recruiters rivals that of any university or college in the nation.  Since the college is the largest producer of African-American engineers at the B.S. level, a national leader in the production of women engineers, and a national leader of African-American engineers at the M.S. and Ph.D. level, hundreds of employers recruit our students both through numerous Career Fairs on campus and many other activities.
