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.

Naval Engineering Certificate

The Naval Engineering Certificate is designed to provide a degreed engineer the fundamental skills necessary to contribute to naval-specific engineering challenges. The intended audience are engineers degreed in mechanical, aerospace, civil, or other related fields who work directly, or indirectly for the Navy, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, or defense contractor.

Any individual wishing to pursue the Naval Engineering Certificate must hold an engineering degree from an ABET-accredited undergraduate program. Engineers from non-ABET-accredited degree programs, and non-engineering scientists, to include mathematicians and physicists, may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

To sit for the final Naval Engineering Certificate assessment, learners may satisfy the intended learning outcomes using the mapping outlined below. All criteria must be satisfied within 5 years prior to applying to sit for the final assessment, and courses and symposia referred to below are ASNE offerings. ASNE reserves the right to update this mapping annually to reflect current offerings.

A final assessment will be offered annually. The assessment shall be drafted by the ASNE Professional Development Committee. Applicants for the final assessment must indicate their intent to sit for the exam, provide documentation of their ABET-accredited engineering degree, and proof of completion of core curriculum no less than one month prior to the scheduled examination date by e-mailing this form to certificate@navalengineers.org.
