Tom Tomkiewicz

Tom Tomkiewicz

Graduating May 2021

Majoring in Manufacturing Engineering

This past summer, Tom successfully completed his second internship with Caterpillar while also working on four-dimensional printing research and volunteering with the West Peoria Fire Department. During his internship, he was assigned to the Mapleton Foundry as a Manufacturing Engineering Intern. The project he worked on aimed to achieve production readiness of a new process that makes the large sand molds to pour 3600 series and EMD engine blocks, which are Caterpillar’s largest engines and most profitable products. A 3600-engine block casting can weigh around 22,000 lbs. This was a large-scale process that involved introducing the World’s Largest Blown Core Making Machine. In his role, he was given 40 projects and tasks and worked on numerous crucial aspects of the process. Tom is also the President of Bradley’s Society of Manufacturing Engineers and is working with others to start a new club which aims to create a community among students to inspire and motivate them to take steps to ensure their success.
