ASML US brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Wilton, CT, Chandler, AZ, San Jose, CA and San Diego, CA.

Job Mission

As the world’s leading semiconductor lithography machine (the machine that makes computer chips) manufacturer, ASML enables chip manufacturers to make cheaper, faster chips, thereby enabling all the technology you use today. The machines we make require high speed, magnetically levitated stages with sub-nanometer accuracy, robotic mask delivery systems, mechatronic devices to shape and correct the laser illumination source, and optical modules that can detect sub-nanometer alignment errors and pattern distortions. Temperature controlled to milli-kelvins, particulate free, and operating in complete vacuum, the technical challenges are endless. Solving these challenges requires expertise in servo controls, mechatronics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, embedded software engineering, optics, physics, manufacturing, industrialization, and more. If you like extreme challenges and want to help bring the next generation of technology to the world, then come join ASML.

This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Job Description

Internship Goals and Objectives

  • Work in a team environmentalongside local experienced engineers.
  • Specific tasks will be tailoredto match the education / experience level of the intern as well as theinterns learning objectives for the summer.
  • The 2020 project will focus on improving the effectiveness of computer vision system in our EUV light source. Our light sources have high precision imaging systems to monitor the tin droplets and plasma. The computer vision system interprets these images in real time to identify key performance metrics
  • The goal of the internship isfor you to learn about working in a corporate setting and to provide handson experience solving real world problems in a team environment.
  • Interns will typically berequired to document and present their findings as well as making an endof summer presentation to the group about what they achieved during theirinternship.


  • Current active students in Computer Science, Mathematics, Optics, or relevant engineering majors are welcome to apply for this position.
  • Must possess no less than a 3.0 GPA, be an active college student and have junior or senior level standing.


  • Background in computer vision and/or image processing is required
  • Knowledge in imaging system (i.e., cameras) is highly desirable.
  • Current graduate student with an expected graduation date in 2021 preferred.

Personal skills

  • Possess strong ownershipcharacteristics and commitment to achieving results on time
  • Have strong written and oralcommunicative skills
  • Be a demonstrated “team player”with a quality orientation and interpersonal skills
  • Have strong problem solvingskills and the ability to take initiative
  • Be willing to be “wrong” attimes and be open to the ideas of others

Other information

  • Multiple positions available for Summer 2020
