Some students elect to take a GRE subject test in preparation for graduate school. The paper based exam (available for Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, and Literature in English) is administered three times per academic year; in September, October, and April.
Middlebury College will be administering GRE subject tests on:
- Saturday, September 15, 2018
- Saturday, October 27, 2018
- Saturday, April 6, 2019
Seats are limited for the exam, so students are encouraged to register early through the ETS website.
Not all graduate programs require the subject test, and GREs come with an expiration date (typically 5 years), so consider meeting with a faculty or CCI advisor if you are considering taking a GRE subject test.
For additional information, please visit the GRE subject test section of the Educational Testing Service website.

This posting comes to us from Josh Pedowitz ’16. He writes that he would be happy to pass a resume along for anyone who is interested in Cognex. If you want to get in touch or are going to apply, please contact Josh at Josh.email@example.com
Every day and all around the world, Cognex products are working behind the scenes to ensure quality manufacturing and improve industrial processes. Cognex is a world leader in industrial machine vision, providing solutions for image-based barcode reading and 2D and 3D inspection. Cognex pairs world-class algorithms with advanced hardware to provide high-speed and extremely effective vision systems.
Our headquarters are in Natick, MA, just 30 minutes outside Boston, but we have plenty of other engineering offices such as Portland, OR, Milwaukee, WI, and Boulder, CO. Cognex has grown considerably in the past few years and is always looking for talent. Recently, the company has decided to invest more heavily in young talent and has been hiring more new graduates. The best part about Cognex, however, is the culture. I’m sure you’ve heard every other company mention that they have unique culture, but Cognex really is something else. Every Halloween the entire company dresses in costume and spends the day celebrating, including a parade down Rt. 9 in Natick and a big party that evening at a nearby hotel. We play Ultimate Frisbee every day in the field outside our office, and have outings and events throughout the year.
There are currently two associate software engineer positions open. These are both open to new graduates.
There are plenty of other roles open ranging from non-technical to completely technical, so check out the openings at https://jobs.cognex.com/
As we rapidly approach summer break, we want to wish you the best of luck in completing your final exams and papers. We hope you’ve had a good semester and have exciting plans for summer.
While we won’t be maintaining our weekly newsletter over the summer, we encourage you to stay connected by following our career path pages here and here! We’ll be busy through the summer working on committee letters and advising students applying to medical/dental/veterinary school, but WE REMAIN OPEN TO ALL STUDENTS WITH QUESTIONS.
- For technical questions about your professional school applications and deadlines, email Nicole.
- To schedule an appointment with an advisor, email Mary or Hannah with the topics you’d like to discuss and your preferred days/times.
Have you received an offer for an internship, full-time job, or admission to graduate school? Let us know!
Finally, we wish to congratulate all of our May graduates. We hope that you will stay in touch and let us know how you are doing. Have an enjoyable, productive, and safe summer!

STEAM Girls is an initiative started by a couple of Middlebury students, with a professor, to teach various STEM subjects and their intersection with art to young girls around Middlebury. Our goal is to make young girls more comfortable and confident in STEM subjects in the future. We were funded by MiddChallenge a couple of years ago to start a two-summer program and have since grown to establish a weekly after school program as well.

“Aileen Rizo was training math teachers in the public schools in Fresno, Calif., when she discovered that her male colleagues with comparable jobs were being paid significantly more.
She was told there was a justifiable reason: Employees’ pay was based on their salaries at previous jobs, and she had been paid less than they had earlier in their careers.
Ms. Rizo, who is now running for the California State Assembly, sued. In April, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled in her favor, saying that prior salary could not be used to justify a wage gap between male and female employees.
It’s the latest sign that this has become the policy of choice for shrinking the gender pay gap. Several states, cities and companies have recently banned asking about salary history. They include Massachusetts, California, New York City and Chicago, as well as Amazon, Google and Starbucks.”
