Are you a Bachelor or Master student in Software Engineering with good experience in Python and do you have affinity with machine learning? Then this assignment could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

This internship is positioned within the group responsible for qualifying the defect performance of ASML machines. Part of this qualification process involves exposing wafers and inspecting them with a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). This creates large quantities of SEM images that need to be classified into different defect and non-defect classes (mostly by hand). Making this process more efficient by automation and better classification schemes is essential for faster and more robust system qualifications.

Job Description

You will be part of our Automatic Defect Classification (ADC) team. You will design and create a Graphic User Interface (GUI) for an easy and fast development of deep learning image classification applications. The assignment consists of the following topics:
•Become familiar with the current process of developing an ADC model.
•Become familiar with different machine learning libraries in Python, and how to train an existing neural network architecture for a classification problem.
•Design/create a user friendly GUI that simplifies the process of developing ad-hoc deep-learning applications.
•Create a design report of the GUI.


You are a Bachelor or Master Software Engineering student that has good experience with Python. You are familiar with machine learning Python libraries and its applications. You have previous experience of GUI development using Python. You have strong conceptual and practical understanding of Object Oriented Programming. You are an independent and hardworking person with an ambition to deliver on time. You are fluent in English, both verbally and in writing.

This is an apprentice internship for 4-5 days a week with duration of a minimum 4 months. The start date will be in February 2020.

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.

Other information

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?
