The American Society of Naval Engineers (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.
Green Marine was founded in 2007 by seven major marine industry associations in both Canada and the U.S. and now counts 19 such maritime associations.
