Internship: Qualify and improve the YieldStar Simulator

Computer science & software engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Computer science & software engineering


Are you a Bachelor or Master student in Software Engineering? And do you have experience with test automation, Scripting and C#? Then this assignment could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

To qualify YieldStar (YS) various tests on different level are needed. The system level tests benefit a lot from the YS simulator and this kind of system tests are done roughly once per service pack. However, the YS simulator itself also needs continuous qualification. Without it, we tend to find simulator issues too late and it means either service packs are delayed when the customer needs it the most, or the system level tests are skipped thus risking critical error undetected.

Job Description

Your project is to propose and implement (with the help of STI) a continuous qualification method for YS simulator, understand the YS simulator implementation, discover its weaknesses, propose improvement points and proper design.

Challenges are:
•Understand proper test/qualification procedure;
•Test automation;
•Continuous qualification, as well as some reverse engineering skills.


You are a Bachelor or Master student in Software Engineering. You have experience with test automation, Scripting and C#. Furthermore, you have good communication skills and the English language, both written and verbally, is required. Also, you have a pragmatic mindset.

This is an apprentice or graduation internship for 5 days a week with duration of a minimum 5 months. The start date is in September 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.

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?
