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 Naval Engineers Journal is published quarterly by the American Society of Naval Engineers. It is distributed to all ASNE members, and subscription is available to non-members. The NEJ is a medium for technical papers in the field of naval engineering. It also contains schedules of meetings, symposia, and other events, news, notes, and membership information. Advertising is accepted. 

The Society invites both members and non-members to submit manuscripts of previously unpublished papers for the NEJ. Papers on the full range of subjects of interest to naval engineers are welcome. Manuscripts are published in the earliest NEJ for which sufficient material is not on hand. Manuscripts accepted for publication become the property of the American Society of Naval Engineers, Inc., and are copyrighted by the Society upon being published in the NEJ. All papers are reviewed by the Journal Committee for originality, depth of treatment, significance, organization, interest, and clarity before acceptance for publication. Papers must be objective and completely free of advertising and commercialism. 

ASNE members have free online access to the Naval Engineers Journal. If you are a member, login and click on NEJ Online Access.
