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 2017

The member of this month is ASNE Council Member Victoria Dlugokecki, P.E..  See what Vicky had to say to Membership and Graphic Design Manager Michelle Redmon.  

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

Vicky: Our industry recently lost a titan - Ron Kiss. During my time at Webb Institute, he was at the Pentagon as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Ship Programs ASN for Research, Development, and Acquisition at the Department of the Navy... To me, as a student and a budding naval architect and marine engineer, that had to be one of the most prestigious positions that I'd ever heard of. It was during my time at Webb that I actually got to meet him in person, and that really started my interest in Naval Engineering.

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

Vicky: I've got ten years of classical piano lessons under my belt. It was when I was young, but I've recently rekindled my piano playing.

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

Vicky: It would have to be Albert Einstein, especially after watching the recent TV mini-series "Genius" based on his life.

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

Vicky: I think I would base it my heritage... a combination Italian and Polish food truck. For those who wanted Italian food, I would have some hot and cold heroes, maybe meatball parm, chicken parm, or italian cold-cut heroes. From my Polish side, I'd go with my top three - kielbasa, pierogies, and golabki (stuffed cabbage). Of course, Italian ices and chrusciki for dessert.

Michelle: Why are you a member of ASNE?

Vicky: I've been a member of ASNE ever since joining in college, and have never thought of ending my relationship with the society, even though quite a few of my jobs throughout my career weren't focused on Naval Engineering. ASNE is a great organization for networking, it has great technical programs for professional development, and I enjoy its premier publication, the Naval Engineering Journal.

Michelle: What does “Naval Engineering” mean to you?

Vicky: Naval Engineering is the collection of skills necessary to design and build the most sophisticated ships in the world.
