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. 

Member of the Month - December 2016

Happy Holidays! Our December member of the month is Paul Siebeking, a Region III Council Representative and Tidewater Section membership chair. In his volunteer roles, he provides representation for members throughout the southeastern region of the United States, and has been a positive agent for membership recruitment and retention.

What got you into Naval Engineering? 
While at Norfolk Naval Shipyard, Adm. Brown the CO "suggested" That all ED's should join either or both ASNE or SNAME. That was the same time they were putting together the Tidewater Section of ASNE. Which made me a charter member. 

What is a fun fact most people don't know about you? 
I like NASCAR racing. They always say a pre race Prayer, National Anthem and Fly over. And all the players salute during the National Anthem. They over engineer their cars which is also great.

What is one engineer/scientist/ or mathematician dead or alive would you like to meet? 
Thomas Edison, a New Jersey guy, who lit up the world. 

If you could engineer your perfect concession stand/food truck, what would it be? 
A lobster and seafood Food Truck!
