The records of the North Carolina State University Engineers' Council contain administrative records (including meeting minutes, officer and committee files, financial records, their constitution, membership information, and other general records), records from events and activities the Council hosted, files from their involvement with the Order of St. Patrick engineering honorary society, production and publications files (including photographic files) for their publication, the NC State Engineer (and its predecessor, the Southern Engineer), and other general information about the Council, its members, and its activities. The Engineers' Council was established in or before 1926 at North Carolina State College (University), to act as a represtative undergraduate student organization for all departments within the School (College) of Engineering.

The purpose of the Engineers' Council was to provide a unified student voice within the School of Engineering, while also promoting the study and practice of the various disciplines in engineering. While the records of the Engineers' Council do not indicate gaps in the Councils' activity, the Council may have disbanded at some point and reformed in 1987, according to their current (as of 2008) website. The Engineers' Council remains active as of 2008.
