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.

Free video game

Live Gaming Feeds

Hands-on Science

FLEET is a free engineering video game. It will be the heart of this Spring Break. You can download the game for free at any time.   

Our Twitch channel allows students to interact with us live. These videos will be exported to YouTube and used throughout the week.

We will set up some hands-on science activities using materials freely around the home (e.g., plastic cups, sink of water, etc.).

Spring Break + Gaming!!

These schedules are flexible. Videos will be released each day. There will be many opportunities to participate in live streams during the day, and students may choose to live stream their own game play. Each day ends with a dinner time conversation topic.


8-9 a.m. Download the FLEET game. Hands-on science: How to work on the bottom of a boat?
9-10 a.m. Play FLEET. Make your boat go as fast as possible.
10-11 a.m. Make a draft of the engineering process you choose to use this week.
11 a.m.-1 p.m.   BREAK. Readings are available including descriptions of NJROTC workouts and lives of engineers.
1-2 p.m. Consider all the ways to sink a boat, and post ideas on our password-protected forum.
2-3 p.m. Play FLEET. Make your boat as maneuverable as possible.
3-4 p.m. Revisit the engineering process and sketch or video an explanation of your engineering process.

Dinner Conversation:

How did you make the boat go fastest today?

You should register for free today. You can also get the free video game today or on the Monday morning when camp begins.


What is FLEET?

The Future Leaders in Experience-based Engineering and Technology (FLEET) program is an innovative, competitive ship design video game for students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). This program was piloted with great success last year and we are now engaging interested schools and organizations to participate this school year. Students will be challenged to make realistic ship design decisions for Navy vessels that will be used to complete various missions.

We are now accepting grant applications for the $1,000 FLEET implementation grants. We are accepting applications on a rolling basis through June 15, 2018 (or until we have exhausted the grant funds). This year's application is simplified, and focuses on explaining how you will use the funds to implement FLEET.

You can find FLEET curricula under "For Educators" in the left margin, and our demo activities are listed below in our "Past Events." More information can be found using the navigation buttons to the left, scrolling down to the FAQs, or by downloading the:
