ASNE President, RADM Mark Hugel, USN (Ret.)
“These are exciting times to be a naval engineer. New ship designs are on the “drawing board”; new ships are steadily delivering from our nation’s shipyards and the readiness of our legacy fleet is attracting prominent attention as our maritime services face more blue water missions than since the Cold War era. Additionally, new technologies are being devised to increase the lethality of our ships, offering opportunities for naval engineers to outfit the ships of today with the technology of tomorrow. ASNE plays a vital role as an enabler to the development and sharing of innovative ideas and technologies among the maritime community. Perhaps more importantly, ASNE must continue to foster the mentoring of the next generation of naval engineers.”
