The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that by the year 2010, America will face a skilled-worker shortage of 8 million, increasing to approximately 14 million by 2020.
… through 2014 employers will be seeking:
17,000 industrial/manufacturing engineers
14,000 mechanical engineers
14,000 engineering technicians
273,000 metal and plastic production workers
The 21st Century workforce is not just about making sure that Silicon Valley has enough engineers.

Labor Secretary Elaine L. Chao, March 6, 2001 The 21st Century Workforce

The PLTW CIM course offers AOE the opportunity to establish manufacturing career centers at high schools around the country where SME Chapters/members could be linked as mentors and their companies as Internship/Externship providers
The CIM programs would allow us to strategically establish sites that are part of the PLTW, SME-EF & AOE network in areas where manufacturing is vibrant and strong
Also, it will allow SME-EF to link our available scholarships ($650,000 in 2009) to students who have come through AOE programs
