Department of Physics and Engineering
Letter from Tom Schieffer




Dear Dr. Wiest:

How are things in the Department of Physics and Engineering? I am doing well. After Wesleyan, I earned my M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of South Carolina.

I am now employed at Koyo Bearing Corporation as a quality engineer in the design of ball bearings. I help solve processing problems, submit samples to customers, analyze trouble reports, and investigate defective bearings returned by customers.

We produce bearings for the Toyota Camry, Ford Mustang, Nissan Quest, and the new Mercedes built in Alabama. Iím pretty happy working for a Tier-1 supplier to Ford. [As his professors will recall, Tom really likes Fords.]
