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. 

CAPT Marc Lebeau, USCG

Award: Clifford G. Geiger Award

Year: 2017

Recipient: CAPT Marc Lebeau, USCG


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



Captain Lebeau was a key leader during the Coast Guard’s engineering and logistics transformation, an effort involving significant organizational restructuring and changes in business practices, establishing revised and modernized organizational and depot level maintenance requirements for the entire Coast Guard surface fleet. His efforts ensured integration of all maintenance, supply, and configuration data for cutters and boats, greatly improving their operational availability during and after the Coast Guard’s modernization efforts. His leadership and expert guidance of the naval engineering community during this time of fundamental change significantly improved Coast Guard mission execution.

Captain Lebeau is uniquely gifted at establishing productive rapport and relationships with operational commanders, headquarters staffs, ship commanding officers, and industry partners. He works collaboratively to develop responsive solutions that minimize operational impact of engineering degradations. A notable mentor to senior leaders, he is frequently consulted by ship Commanding Officers regarding the full spectrum of naval engineering and logistics services.

A demonstrated leader who has given a lifetime of honorable service to the USCG and the naval engineering community, he has consistently exemplified the highest traditions of the American Society of Naval Engineers. It is our honor to name CAPT Marc Lebeau, USCG the recipient of the American Society of Naval Engineers’ 2017 Clifford G. Geiger Award.
