The award, presented annually by the IIT Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, recognizes alumni who “have brought recognition to the department through their outstanding contributions to the advancement of the chemical and/or biological engineering professions, and to alumni who have shown exceptional dedication to the department through the generous donation of their time, effort, and/or financial resources.”

Adomaitis is the director of the Thin Film Processing Group, which focuses on simulation-based design, optimization, and experimental evaluation of advanced materials manufacturing processes. The group is particularly interested in developing new reactor designs for thin-film deposition of semiconductor materials for electronic and solar energy applications.
