||Welcome to the Website of the New England Section of SNAME!
The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers was organized in 1893, to advance the art, science, and practice of naval architecture, shipbuilding and marine engineering. For over a century members have included commercial and governmental practitioners, students, and educators of naval architecture, shipbuilding, and marine and ocean engineering.
SNAME encourages the exchange and recording of information, sponsors applied research, offers career guidance, supports education, and enhances the professional status and integrity of its membership.
The New England Section was inaugurated on June 12, 1944. We comprise members in the US States of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
The section is always interested in what are members are doing. Let us know and we'll feature you on the New England microsite.
