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 - January 2018


The 2017 Combat Systems Symposium was a big one for new memberships and membership renewals! Our membership manager, Michelle Redmon, caught up with a Tom Devine, Graham George, John Journell, Randall Walker, and Stephen Woodall at the event as shown in the photos above.  Below are some quick tidbits from Stephen Woodall and Randall Walker in particular.

Michelle Redmon: What got you into Naval Engineering?
Stephen Woodall: I got into Naval Engineering “all the way” in my first duty station in the summer of 1967 -- USS LYNDE McCORMICK (DDG 8). I was assigned as the Main Propulsion Assistant, responsible for the 1200 psi steam plant --- 4 boilers, two main engines --- plus the fuel and feed water systems, as well as 5 Chief Petty Officers and @ 80 BTs and MMs. A super tour, including two 8-month deployments to Vietnam. I served a total of 27 years on active duty, and began a second career of work in systems engineering, systems analysis, and vision-based strategic planning. Note my recently published book: Strategy with Passion - A Leader's Guide to Exploiting the Future.

Michelle Redmon: If you could design a food truck, what would it be?
Randall Walker: My choice would be a Margarita Truck or a Buffet Truck. In good times, it would be a buffet truck followed by a Margarita truck.
