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. 


For Educators 

Quick Links:  Middle School       High School        Literacy Materials 

FLEET is a web-based science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) competition that is free to U.S. students in grades nine through twelve. FLEET utilizes the youth friendly model of gamification to engage high school students in naval ship design and enables them to apply the real-life applications of STEM. Working individually, students compete via a web-based platform to complete several scenarios faced by naval engineers on a daily basis in the field. The entire competition occurs online. Exceptional student performers will be invited to a capstone event for an onsite competition to be held in May or June 2018. More details to follow!

Need funding to use FLEET in 2018-2019?

The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) will be seeking mini-grant applications for the 2018-2019 academic year. These mini-grants support teachers who seek to enhance STEM learning for their students using the FLEET materials. Funds may be used to offset the costs for schools with limited access to technology, cover additional educator hours to staff after-school clubs, or other needs as identified by the school.

The grant window is open now through October 1, 2018. The application is available at:

  • 2018-2019 Implementation Grant Application (available in PDFWord).
  • NOTE: Schools interested in attending the Capstone Competition in May 2019 should email fleet@navalengineers.org for special grant consideration.
