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. Jesse Geisbert

Award: Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award 


Mr. Jesse Geisbert

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


In barely ten years from the time Mr. Jesse Geisbert started his professional career at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock, he has risen from a newly graduated engineer that was eager to learn, to a highly respected professional with multi-million dollar responsibilities. He is a highly motivated engineer with advanced managerial responsibilities within the US Navy submarine program office. His strong technical background along with his proven managerial experience in the technical integration of submarine propulsor research, design and development have been widely recognized resulting in him being promoted to become the VIRGINIA Class Propulsor Manufacturing Project Manager. This meteoric rise is not just due to his desire to learn but to his high ethical standards; his excellent work standards; and, his engaging, friendly, respectful personality.

Known for his cheerful persistence, Mr. Geisbert maintains an unsurpassed knowledge of the private and government industrial base capable of supporting submarine propulsor efforts, and manages the network of vendors necessary to deliver components as required by the fleet. Mr. Geisbert has introduced a new level of rigor into the management of submarine propulsor manufacturing, and worked to coordinate VIRGINIA Class manufacturing with the needs of the entire submarine fleet. This level of coordination between government and industry, with an eye towards schedule risk reduction and cost efficiency, is unprecedented and will provide great value to the Navy.

For his exceptional early career contributions in keeping with the highest traditions of the Rosenblatt name, the American Society of Naval Engineers is pleased to name Mr. Jesse Geisbert the recipient of the 2017 Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award.
