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.

Instructor: Michael B. Stanton 
Location: Webinar

Date: 21 July 2016 - NEW DATE
Time: 1400-1500 Eastern

Course Description: Compared to other well-known industries, the shipbuilding and ship repair industry (both domestically and internationally) is subject to fluctuations in operational performance and employment stability. These fluctuations are caused by a combination of structural considerations unique to this industry, and create a business risk profile that extends to expectations (and outcomes) for both customers and owners/shareholders. This course identifies the six (6) reasons that (taken collectively) drive this industry dynamic, and make shipbuilding and ship repair uniquely challenged amongst all major world industries.

1. How the shipbuilding and ship repair industry product, market, operations and capital structure compares to other well-known industries.
2. The six reasons why the shipbuilding & ship repair industry is unique in terms of operational risk profile versus performance results.
3. The unique role of governments (domestic and international) in the industry.

Professional Development Hours (PDHs): 1 Hour

Course Level: Introductory (100 level) - Learner requires little to no previous knowledge of this topic area
