ASNE - American Society of Naval Engineers

Back to all news


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.

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.

ASNE fosters professional development and technical information exchange through technical committees, local section activities and cooperative efforts with government organizations and other professional societies. The purposes of ASNE are:         

  • To advance the knowledge and practice of naval engineering.
  • To enhance the professionalism and well-being of members.
  • To promote naval engineering as a career field.
