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. Monique Kadmiri

Award: Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award  


Ms. Monique Kadmiri

For remarkable, early professional achievement with demonstrated potential for continued distinction in the field of naval engineering.



Ms. Monique Kadmiri joined the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division in West Bethesda, MD in 2002 and was selected for the competitive Department of the Navy (DON) Acquisition Intern Program.  Ms. Kadmiri’s first assignment was in the High Speed Craft Innovation Cell, where she supported development of a parametric modeling tool for new ship design programs.  In January 2003, Ms. Kadmiri was assigned as a project Naval Architect on the T-AKE design team, which supported detail design and construction of a Military Sealift Command Cargo and Ammunition Replenishment Ship.  Following this assignment, she continued supporting the T-AKE Program in the New Construction Supervisor of Shipbuilding Office in San Diego, CA.  

In 2004, Ms. Kadmiri served as a key source selection team member for a major shipbuilding acquisition program and then moved on to support the design team as a Project Engineer.  In October 2004, she became a member of the Government Test and Evaluation team for the LPD 17 Class of ships at Avondale Shipyard in New Orleans, LA and Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, MS.  Ms. Kadmiri successfully finished the DON Acquisition Intern Program at the end of 2004 and returned to Washington, D.C. where she served as the Principle Naval Architect for the T-AKE Program and the Design Integration Manager for the Marine Pre-Positioning Force Future (MPF(F)) Program from January 2005 through the end of 2006.  As the MPF(F) Design Integration Manager, Ms. Kadmiri led development of the system specification documents for two major shipbuilding programs and managed a $29M engineering budget.  

At the end of 2006, Ms. Kadmiri joined the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) and was selected to work in a new In-Service Ship Design Division as the FFG 7 Class Deputy Ship Design Manager.  She served as the CG 47 Class Ship Design Manager from July 2008 to January 2010 and received specific recognition from Commanding Officers as being an asset to ships that go through mandatory formal inspections that are accomplished by representatives for Congress.  Ms. Kadmiri traveled around the world during her assignment in the In-Service Ship Design Division to complete shipchecks and technical assessments that support specific Department of the Navy initiatives to reduce total ownership costs of ships and prioritize technical issues that are crucial to ships meeting expected service lives.   Monique also led NAVSEA Headquarters support of USS PORT ROYAL’s (CG 73) extensive repair project, which was required due to severe damage that resulted from a grounding incident off the coast of Honolulu in February 2009.  

Ms. Kadmiri was recognized for her pro-active, hands-on approach to supporting this and other shipyard repair projects and was appointed by NAVSEA’s Commanding Officer as the Deputy Chief Engineer for Surface Ships at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard in February 2010.  While serving as the Deputy Chief Engineer, she was awarded the Meritorious Civilian Service Award by the Commander, Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, for continued technical support on the USS PORT ROYAL repair effort and on ships that participated in the 2010 Rim of the Pacific joint foreign military event.  Ms. Kadmiri earned a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Maryland in 2006 and a Bachelor’s degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2002.
