The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) announced that Honeywell chairman and CEO Darius Adamczyk G’91 was elected as a member for the class of 2023. Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.”

Adamczyk is one of 106 new members elected in the NAE Class of 2023. He was selected for his “technical and business leadership in quantum computing, sustainable technologies, and automation, and promoting diversity in STEM careers.”

In 1991, Adamczyk earned a master’s degree in computer engineering from Syracuse University.

“We are so genuinely excited for Darius Adamcyzk, as induction into the NAE is a career-defining achievement. This honor asserts what we have known for many years: Darius is a world-class engineer, innovator, and visionary,” says Engineering and Computer Science Dean J. Cole Smith. “His achievements are a reflection of his journey from Poland as a young man, through his wildly successful university experiences, and now as a world leader in engineering and technology. He is an exemplar of what any immigrant, or any engineer, or any Orange student can hope to achieve.”

Before being elected chairman of Honeywell in 2018 and named president and CEO in 2017, Adamczyk served as president and chief operating officer. In those roles, he has focused on accelerating Honeywell’s growth, building the company’s advanced software programming capabilities and implementing a high-performance culture.
