‎Let $G$ be a finite non-abelian group with center $Z(G)$‎. ‎The non-commuting graph of $G$ is a simple undirected graph whose vertex set is $G\setminus Z(G)$ and two vertices $x$ and $y$ are adjacent if and only if $xy \ne yx$‎. ‎In this paper‎, we compute Laplacian energy of the non-commuting graphs of some classes of finite non-abelian groups‎..
