“You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” — Andrew Grant.


Except when you participate in ASML’s Physics Day. Joining this online master class will allow you to learn about the physics challenges that ASML tackles every day. And as a bonus, you get to work on your personal development and practice your ‘first impression’ at a company as a physics engineer.

Applications open

Applications for the Physics Day master class are open until September 28, 2023 (23:59 CET)


Program details

On November 2, 2023, this interactive program will immerse you into the world of physics at ASML. You'll learn about our semiconductor manufacturing technology and discover the role your field of study plays in developing the most advanced lithography machines in the world. Moreover, you’ll talk to our engineers and learn how to make a lasting first impression!


You will:

  • Learn more about our impressive technology with an in-depth technical presentation.

  • Work on a real-life case in small teams to experience an actual ASML problem.

  • Hear from a diverse group of ASML engineers and their professional journey.

  • Get a chance to ask questions in groups of 2 or 3 to an ASML engineer with your study background.

  • Explore what your future could look like at ASML in a 1 on 1 conversion with managers from different technical teams.
