Are you a Master student in Applied Mathematics or Statistics with the desireto apply theoretical results to business problems? Then this graduation assignment could be interesting for you!
Transfer Entropy (TE) is a research field part of Information Theory which is used to analyze time series data. In ASML we use TE to analyze the data generated by ASML systems in order to understand better how they operate. This, in turn allows us to gain fundamental understanding of thephysical processes present in the ASML systems. This work is a the interface of fundamental and applied research.
You will be asked to investigate fundamental theoretical questionson TE and to apply these findings to real-world data and problems. You will be working in a multidisciplinary team where you are expected both to collaborate in the solution of problems and to work autonomously.
You are a Master student in Applied Mathematics or Statistics with a good knowledge of Matlab and Python. The ideal candidate should be a good communicator and should be able to come up with original ideas to solve fundamental questions in Research. The desire to apply theoretical results to business problems is a must. Thereby, the English language is required, both written and verbally.
This is a Graduation Internship for 5 days a week with duration of a minimum 6 months.
Please keep in mind that we can only consider students (who are enrolled at a school during the whole internship period) for our internships and graduation assignments.
What ASML offers
Your internship will be in one of the leading Dutch corporations, gaining valuable experience in a highly dynamic environment. You will receive a monthly internship allowance of 500 euro (maximum), plus a possible housing or travel allowance. In addition, you’ll get expert, practical guidance and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic, innovative team environment.
ASML: Be part of progress
We make machines that make chips – the hearts of the devices that keep us informed, entertained and safe; that improve our quality of life and help to tackle the world’s toughest problems.
We build some of the most amazing machines that you will ever see, and the software to run them. Never satisfied, we measure our performance in units that begin with pico or nano.
We believe we can always do better. We believe the winning idea can come from anyone. We love what we do – not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard.
Students: Getting ready for real-world R&D
Pushing technology further is teamwork, and our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong, with major sites on three continents. Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule.
In such an environment, your colleagues may be sitting next door, or they could be thousands of kilometers away in a different country, or even working for a different company.
An internship at ASML is your opportunity to get to know this world of industrial-strength R&D and get a feel for that excites you most. Will you design a part of the machine, or make sure it gets built to the tightest possible specifications? Will you write software that drives the system to its best performance, or work side-by-side with the engineers of our customers in a fab, optimizing a system to the requirements of the customer?
How will you be part of progress?
