UNO Alumnus Receives Prestigious Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award

University of New Orleans alumnus Glen Grogan is the 2013 recipient of the Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award, presented by the American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE). University of New Orleans alumnus Glen Grogan is the 2013 recipient of the Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award, presented by the American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE). Grogan, a naval architect with the U.S. Navy, will accept the award at the ASNE Annual Honors Gala on Feb. 20 in Arlington, Va.

Established by the ASNE Council, the Rosenblatt Young Naval Engineer Award is presented to a person less than 35 years old who has demonstrated remarkable early professional achievement in the field of naval engineering as evidenced by superior innovation and insight, or outstanding technical leadership, and obvious potential for continued distinction in naval engineering.

Grogan attended the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and graduated from UNO in 2005 with a bachelor's degree in naval architecture and marine engineering. He later earned a master's degree in systems engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif.

"This award means a lot to me and I am extremely thankful to UNO for letting me transfer in and graduate so efficiently," Grogan said. "I look forward to meeting the next generation of young engineers with UNO on their resumes."

Grogan is currently the ship design manager for the USS Ticonderoga Class Aegis Cruisers and is assigned to the Naval Sea Systems Command. He is responsible for the total ship systems engineering of this 22-ship major-command class. Grogan is the Navy's technical authority for the most powerful surface combatants in service with any navy. According to ASNE, his strong technical skills, as well as his proven leadership abilities in managing diverse, multidisciplinary teams demonstrate his potential for continued distinction in naval engineering.

The American Society of Naval Engineers was founded in 1888 as U.S. naval technology turned from sail to steam. Today ASNE is the leading professional engineering society representing scientists, engineers and allied professionals who conceive, design, develop, test, construct, outfit, operate and maintain naval surface, subsurface and air vehicles and their associated systems and subsystems.

UNO's School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering is the only one of its kind in the Gulf Coast region and one of the few in the nation. Established in 1980 at the request of the local shipbuilding industry, the program produces well-prepared graduates who are in high demand in the fields of naval architecture and marine engineering.
