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. 

Mr. Craig F. Brandenburg

Clifford G. Geiger Award


Mr. Craig F. Brandenburg

For his exceptional leadership and influence within the naval logistics community as set forth in the following citation:

With a career in naval logistics spanning over 25 years, Mr. Craig Brandenburg has had a significant impact on the field of naval logistics.  He is recognized across the naval logistics community as a subject matter expert in configuration management and for his ability to bring together diverse groups including logisticians and engineers.

In his various leadership roles Mr. Brandenburg has led a diverse and professional workforce where he works closely with the entire organization to foster an environment of pride, teamwork, and enthusiasm. Whether conducting performance audits, responding to Congressional challenges to acquisition and life cycle management, or solving complex configuration demands, he has motivated and assisted his workforce in realizing their full potential while simultaneously reaching the organization’s goals.

Mr. Brandenburg has also been a leader in the Navy Logistics Intern Program, both as a participant and graduate and as its management head. This program is practically the only avenue for bringing new logisticians into the organization resulting in a nationwide search for talent. He has been a mentor and a Career Counselor to many interns during their three-year program, and is still an active member of the Program’s leadership team. He is proud of the strong record of ethnic and cultural diversity the Navy has achieved, for the positive, team-oriented work ethic by which interns and program graduates are known, and for the high quality of the people the Program has attracted. 

Mr. Brandenburg’s superior efforts have contributed significantly to many aspects of naval logistics and have indeed proven him most deserving of the Society’s 2009 Clifford G. Geiger Award.
