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.

ELA Resources

The ELA resources are first grouped by topic, and then ordered by grade level. There are downloadable PDFs with the texts, questions, and keys. Each worksheets gives students the opportunity to identify academic vocabulary that they did not know. Teachers can use this information for targeted or whole-class follow-up activities.

If you have any suggestions or issues, please email us at fleet@navalengineers.org.

Need funding to use the FLEET curriculum?

The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) is seeking mini-grant applications for the 2017-2018 academic year. ASNE and Navatek LTD are partners in the Future Leaders in Experience-based Engineering and Technology (FLEET) program with support from the Office of Naval Research (ONR).

 

The purpose of the mini-grant is to support teachers who seek to enhance classroom learning for their students. 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. To apply for the mini-grant, please complete the 2017-2018 mini-grant application and submit it electronically to fleet@navalengineers.org. Teachers may apply for up to $1000 in funding each year. All mini-grant applications will be considered on a rolling basis through December 30, 2017 for this year’s competition.  Download an application package here.
