The American Society of Naval Engineers

ASNE was founded in 1888 to foster research and development in the new technology of steam propulsion and in new materials as applied to Naval warships. ASNE has since expanded its breadth of interest to all engineering matters as related to Naval ship design, maintenance, and operation. Current membership is comprised of over 5,000 engineers engaged in shipboard hull, mechanical, and electrical systems; combat systems; hydrodynamics; naval architecture; nuclear and conventional propulsion; aircraft systems; and a potpourri of traditional engineering disciplines as applied to Naval ships.


The Goals 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.


ASNE will provide 1 year of complimentary student membership to any student providing proof of membership in a related technical society such as AIAA, ASME, IEEE, NSBE, SAME, SHPE, SNAME, or SWE.

Naval engineering includes all arts and sciences as applied in the research, development, design, construction, and operation.
