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.

ASNE STEM Outreach Winter/Spring 2023

Aspects of Our STEM

The Office of Naval Research grant #N00014-23-1-2179 funds universities across the country participating in Promoting Electric Propulsion (PEP). Students build electric-powered boats for a five-mile race. These boats may carry people or may drive themselves. As part of ASNE's management of this competition, we are creating a manned and unmanned model craft for demonstration and outreach. We can present one or both of these crafts during STEM events, and share the design process underpinning them, indoors and/or outdoors. During April and May, we will visit our participating universities from Texas to Rhode Island and Michigan to Georgia. We invite student groups to see these testing days to understand how engineers work to iteratively improve their work.

For current PEP information, see the PEP homepage. You can see the variety of PEP designs at the 2022 and 2021 competition pages.

The FLEET video game has thousands of users and has been a part of in-school and out-of-school learning since 2018. This game presents a physics simulator within the engineering design process to support students' three-dimensional science learning. This game is free to download and use in your community. In addition, FLEET can serve as pre-work for students joining us at a STEM event. In addition to the game, we have wrap-around resources including hands-on investigations and literacy-based resources.

See the STEM-FLEET header at the top of the page for all the FLEET resources.

We regularly present career information, in-water demonstrations, and special presentations. If we can bring our water tanks or handouts, just let us know how we can help you.
