  Welcome to the Website of the Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia Section includes the Philadelphia metropolitan area of eastern Pennsylvania, northern Delaware, and southern New Jersey.  Matthew Eayre serves as Chair.
