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. 

August 2016 ASNE Member of the Month: Mike Mielnik

This month's ASNE Member of the Month is Mike Mielnik. In nominating him, his section wrote: Mike has been the ASNE Delaware Valley secretary from 2003 - present. The section and society as a whole has seen many changes over the last twelve years and Mike's support has been constant. As a career Naval Officer, Mike has extensive experience in ship's system design, repair, maintenance, Test and Evaluation and In-Service Engineering as various assignments, including Force Engineer, Surface Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet and Executive Officer of NAVSSES. Mike is currently a Program Manager at NDI Engineering. His personal engineering and research ability have provided the Navy options for Pulse Power Storage, DC to AC conversion and high amperage power connectors.


Membership Manager Michelle Redmon caught up with Mike for a recent Q&A session.

Michelle: What got you into Naval Engineering? (What specific event or moment)

Mike: During a tour, as a youngster, of the Naval Boiler and Turbine Laboratory Philadelphia, I realized that Naval Engineering would be a super life-long adventure. True to my dream, I became a career Engineering Duty Officer. 

Michelle: What is a fun fact most people don't know about you?

Mike: I climbed Mt. Fuji

Michelle: What is one engineer/scientist/ or mathematician dead or alive would you like to meet?

Mike: Rear Admiral George Melville, the father of modern naval engineering and founder of what would become the Naval Ship Systems Engineering Station.

Michelle: If you could engineer your perfect concession stand/food truck, what would it be?

Mike: Since the Philly Cheese Steak market has already been cornered, I would want a concession specializing in foot-long kielbasa subs and gourmet perogi.
