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.

Ms. Lisa Krynick


Reason: for her exceptional leadership and influence within the naval logistics community as set forth in the following



Ms. Lisa Krynick, over her 37 year career, exhibited superior innovative vision and meticulous execution in logistics and modernization for the Coast Guard Naval Engineering Community. She established Naval Engineering business processes that have accelerated the modernization of the Patrol Boat Product. Her expert knowledge of financial systems, supply tools, configuration and maintenance tracking software, and Naval Engineering program policy ensured that the Surface Forces Logistics Command processes leveraged the full potential of the Coast Guard’s information technology tools. Through her leadership, the Coast Guard has achieved surface forces logistics modernization of approximately 120 patrol boats in the United States and around the world, deployed remote inventories to 17 Coast Guard Sectors, and established baseline processes to allow modernization of the major cutter fleet.

Ms. Krynick’s infectious “we can do this” attitude motivated all around her to work harder, smarter, and find new ways to improve support. Her collaborative nature and advocacy for the development of the Naval Engineering workforce advanced modernization efforts across all five boat and cutter product lines and provided the Coast Guard with trained proficient Port Engineers, Availability Supply Managers, and Asset Project Managers. Her innovative ideas and extensive legacy of effective programs and improvements will serve the Coast Guard for many years to come.

Ms. Krynick’s leadership, dedication, technical acumen, and devotion to duty are heartily commended and are in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Coast Guard. It is for these reasons that ASNE is proud to honor Ms. Lisa Krynick with the 2015 Clifford G. Geiger Award.
