Job Category

Electrical engineering


Are you a Bachelor or Master student in Electrical Engineering or equivalent and are you a highly motivated team player with good social and communication skills? Do you have experience in Power Engineering and or high voltage related programs? Than this assignment could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

The department: Electronics Development Deep Ultraviolet (DUV) is responsible for the definition, realization, qualification, and integration of electronic functions and modules in ASML Twinscan XT & NXT machines. In this department you will meet people who have broad knowledge of electronics in all this aspects: architecture, design, and integration. The scope for this assignment is limited to the mechatronics Wafer Stage function (a key positioning module in our lithography system).

Job Description

In order to comply with safety regulations, ASML machines must comply with safety standards (e.g. IEC62368-1). Therefore, the compatibility of the ASML product should be re-investigated.
In this assignment you are going to do research to the current safety standard for ICT and AV equipment with the new standards step by step, to investigate if the machine is qualified according to the new standards. You will report your findings regarding the differences between the new and the old norms and working methods.
An important aspect is that the outgoing standard, 62368-1 applies not only to the end-user product but also to components and subsystems. Therefore, you will get the opportunity to look at the inside of the ASML technology as a whole.


You are a Bachelor or Master student in Electrical Engineering or equivalent. You are a highly motivated team player with good social and communication skills. You have an eye for structure and details. You have experience with Power Engineering and a background in Hardware Development and high voltage (above 60V). The English language is required, both written and verbally.

This is an apprentice internship for at least 3 days a week with a minimum duration of 5 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.

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?
