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. Eric Mscisz

Award: Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award 


Mr. Eric Mscisz


for remarkable, early professional achievement with demonstrated potential for continued distinction in the field of naval engineering as set forth in the following:


Mr. Mscisz has made significant accomplishments in the area of fluid and auxiliary systems automation and is one of the top innovators in this area for the Navy. He has taken on the role of program lead and done a superior job for the LHD Fluid Control System Program, ARDM Automated Docking System, and the Thermal Management System. All three of these systems are brand new concepts using unique hardware, innovative designs and complex software algorithms. These are significant tasks due to the financial size of the programs along with the large number of people to whom Mr. Mscisz provides leadership, guidance and oversight. He truly represents the leadership and technical qualities that the Navy needs in an engineer.

Mr. Mscisz’s leadership skills, technical ability and dedication on the LHD Fluid Control System Program, ARDM Automated Docking System Program and Thermal Management Program have given the Navy three brand new concepts and system designs, each with its own unique benefit. The Fluid Control System design work lead to improved operational situational awareness, environmental compliance, and reduced maintenance and reduced manning. The ARDM Automated Docking System work resulted in increased safety and reliability and the Thermal Management system resulted in reductions in energy usage while increasing crew comfort and morale.

Even while accomplishing this, Mr. Mscisz finds time to provide significant support to ASNE and also to mentor local students and young engineers. Mr. Mscisz is a dedicated American Society of Naval Engineers member and leader. He was chair of the 2013 Intelligent Ship Symposium (ISS, Operations Chair of the 2011 ISS, and is currently the Delaware Valley Section Chair. Mr. Mscisz has co-authored several papers for ISS and the Fleet Maintenance and Modernization Symposia.

For his superior innovation and insight, outstanding technical leadership and obvious potential for continued distinction in naval engineering, and character reflective of the Rosenblatt tradition, Mr. Eric Mscisz is most deserving of the Society’s 2015 Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award.
