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. 

ASNE Earth Day Webinar - - The Next Generation of Clean Energy and Hybrid Power!

To honor Earth Day 2020, ASNE presents a one-hour webinar on hybrid power generation and storage to power and propel vessels. Did you know that hybrid electric power systems are playing an ever-increasing role in meeting the regulatory, operational and efficiency demands of the word marine industry? Please join ASNE’s Professional Development Chair, Rich Delpizzo (Director, ABS Global Government Services) to explore the next generation of hybrid and clean energies including fuel cells, solar panels, and wind alternatives as well as efficient power storage options (e.g. batteries, super-capacitors and flywheels). This free webinar will highlight the potential advantage, disadvantages, challenges and level of readiness for the primary hybrid electric power systems and components that are most suited for marine applications. Rich brings over 30 years’ experience working in all things ships from ship design to international regulatory requirements and operations.

This one-hour discussion is available FREE to both ASNE members and non-members. Register today to save your virtual seat.
