ASNE is the leading professional engineering society for engineers, scientists and allied professionals who conceive, design, develop, test, construct, outfit, operate and maintain complex naval and maritime ships, submarines and aircraft and their associated systems and subsystems.  ASNE also serves the educators who train the professionals, researchers who develop related technology, and students who are preparing for the profession.  Society activities provide support for the U.S. Navy; U.S. Coast Guard; U.S. Marine Corps; U.S. Merchant Marine and U.S. Army.

ASNE is the seventh oldest technical society in the United States.  It was founded in 1888 by a group of naval engineering pioneers, most of them officers of the U.S. Navy's Engineering Corps, who sought a unified approach to their profession in order to make the most of new advances in technology. The purposes of ASNE are:           

  • to advance the knowledge and practice of naval engineering in public and private applications and operations,
  • to enhance the professionalism and well-being of members, and
  • to promote naval engineering as a career field.

For 125 years, the Society’s objectives have been strengthened and preserved to meet the changing needs of a time-honored profession. Today ASNE conducts a variety of technical meetings and symposia, publishes the highly regarded Naval Engineers Journal and a number of other technical proceedings and publications, and fosters professional development and technical information exchange through technical committees, local section activities and cooperative efforts with government organizations and other professional societies.

The Society's annual meeting, ASNE Day, is typically held in February of each year in the Washington, DC, area. The meeting features major addresses by high level industry and government leaders and panel discussions by leading members of the profession.  It also includes presentation and discussion of technical papers on a variety of timely naval engineering topics, presentation of the Society's prestigious annual awards and a large exposition with government and industry exhibits covering the full spectrum of naval engineering technology. ASNE Day is highlighted by the Society’s annual Honors Gala, attended by hundreds of executives and senior managers from both government and industry.

Our website is designed to not only serve our members, but also to support scholars, students and others interested in the varied field of naval engineering.  We welcome your suggestions on ways we can improve your experience. 

The Frank G. Law Award, presented annually since 1980, is given to an individual whose longtime dedication and service to the Society is deemed worthy of special recognition. Captain Law was secretary-treasurer of ASNE from 1969 to 1980. In his honor, this award recognizes long-term significant contributions of service to the Society.

The nominee must have made outstanding and long-term significant contributions through individual effort, or by the direction of others, to the Society, which resulted in one or more of the following: (1) improvement in the Society's operations, (2) enhancement of the Society's objectives, or (3) advancement of the Society's professional stature. Evidence of personal involvement in the management, administration, and financial affairs of the Society measured by achievement while serving as a member, officer, or committee chairperson shall be presented. The nominee must have demonstrated leadership, selfless dedication, effective contribution and personal commitment in support of Society interests, goals, and ideals over a number of years. The nominee must be a member of the American Society of Naval Engineers.
