Introduction

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 Chandler Arizona, San Jose and San Diego California, Wilton Connecticut, and Hillsboro Oregon.

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 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

The position requires a strong technical individual contributor to:

  • Work in a team environment alongside local experienced engineers on real-life troubleshooting and failure analysis related topics
  • Define test plans (modelling, analysis and experiments) to investigate potential failures in some of the source modules, review with the team
  • Perform modelling and calculations and validate them experimentally; built experimental setup in case required
  • Analyze data, review, report and document results and present to the team
  • The goal of the Summer 2020 Internship is for you to learn about working in a corporate setting and to provide hands on experience solving real world problems in a team environment.
  • Interns will typically be required to document and present their findings as well as making an end of summer presentation to the group about what they achieved during their internship.

Education

  • Currently pursuing Bachelor's degree in Physics, Material Science or Engineering with a GPA of 3.0 or above.
  • Must have junior or senior standing in school.

Experience

  • Possess strong ownership characteristics and commitment to achieving results on time
  • Have strong written and oral communicative skills
  • Be a demonstrated “team player” with a quality orientation and interpersonal skills
  • Possess a creative mind in order to find novel design solutions
  • Have strong problem solving skills and the ability to take initiative
  • Be willing to be “wrong” at times and be open to the ideas of others
  • Must have strong English communication skills, both written and oral.

Other information

  • Relocation assistance and/or housing is not provided for these internships.
