No experience (Student)



Job Category

Computer science & software engineering


Are you a Bachelor or Master student in Software Engineering or Computer Science? And are you analytical oriented, searching for a challenging internship? Than this assignment could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

ASML software deals with large set of data that originates from different sensors. Each sensor uses its own coordinate system for measurement. Due to this there is room for programming errors, while performing the operation with data from different coordinates systems. It is very difficult to identify these errors in the early stages that leads to a quite large debugging effort.

Job Description

You will be integrated in the EUV Metrology - Image quality calibration team and have interactions with the other metrology departments.

As an intern working within the EUV Metrology team, you will be responsible for investigating and proposing an architecture and data type system that will enable coordinate system and scaling aware programming. In short: detection of errors like summation of vectors defined in different coordinate systems should be done as soon as possible, preferably during code compile time or in code static check phase.
It is expected that you will come up with prototype solution in C++ and/or Python and propose a way on how the solution can be adopted (deployed) in the ASML software archive.


You are a Bachelor or Master student in Computer Science or Software Engineering. You are proficient in C/C++, Python and you are analytical oriented. You have a background in Software Engineering design. Furthermore, you are autonomous, have good communication skills and are able to work in a team. It is preferred that you have 0-1 year professional experience in a company or professional environment. You are fluent in English, both verbally and in writing.

This is an Master apprentice or Bachelor graduation internship for 5 days a week with duration of a minimum 3 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?
