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. Glen R. Grogan

Award: Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award 


Mr. Glen R. Grogan


For his significant contribution to naval engineering as set forth in the following:

Leadership and teamwork are the cornerstones of Mr. Glen Grogan’s success. Not only has he demonstrated exceptional technical skill, but he has brought together an enthusiastic team of engineers to achieve results uncharacteristic of someone at such an early stage in his career.

Mr. Grogan's drive, confidence and tenacity, and his wide-ranging grasp of technical details are made evident through his work on Navy cruiser maintenance and repair. Mr. Grogan successfully led the effort to determine the root cause of the CG-47 Class proclivity for cracking in the aluminum alloy superstructure, and he ensured the development and validation of measurement tools to assess the rate of problem growth so that Navy repair teams could get ahead of the problem.

Mr. Grogan’s skills were also manifest in his service as Detail Design Integration Manager for DDG 1000, where his team’s efforts contributed directly to a 29% reduction in construction hours on the second ship of the class. His success is rooted in developing a successful human enterprise in his warship design team: one of the greatest challenges that leaders face today. Confronted by high expectations, ever-changing demands, and new technologies and processes, he inspires his team through communication and a focus on common values and purpose.  He has focused his enthusiasm and energy on successful partnerships among team members to facilitate exceptional cooperation and he elevated the dialogue of the design team so team members could communicate more effectively.

In recognition of his remarkable early professional achievements and his ability to coordinate teams to implement process improvements and critical solutions ensuring affordability and sustainability of the Navy fleet, Mr. Glen Grogan is truly deserving of the 2013 Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award.
