Computer science & software engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Computer science & software engineering


Are you a Master graduate student in Computer Science? Do you have experience with software programming and and do you have an interest in Big Data? Then this assignment is interesting for you.

Job Mission

The ASML machines are among the best and most complex one’s ever made by mankind and have hundreds of thousands of tuning controls. Business Line Applications is responsible for providing solutions that help fabs set up and optimize their semiconductor manufacturing process. In this process, various product data are the key input to drive the quality of solutions. It has been a recognized challenge on how to extract and combine the essential information from various data sources to support the product development in the application business.

Job Description

It usually requires significant effort to construct a desired data set from various data sources to address the burning issues due to various “hidden” dependencies (e.g. file format, configurations, data dependency between files…).It is desired to create a tool which uses the information from various data source to generate the data set for desired purpose automatically. It includes but not limited the following aspects:
1) Information matching between different file format versions: propose & implement strategies to sync the existing data, fill in the missing informationand remove redundant information).
2) File consistency in the same dataset (propose & implement strategy to fill in the shared information between files).
3) Data enhancement (propose & implement strategy to enrich the dataset with the simulated data content or adjust the existing data content ).
4) File format validation (propose & implement strategy to connect to the existing file validation server to perform file validation automatically).


You are a Master student in Computer Science with an interest in Big Data. You are familiar with at least one prototyping language (e.g. Matlab, Python, Java or C#/C++). Thereby, you are curious and have a pro-active attitude. The English language is required, both written and verbally.

This is a Master graduation assignment for 3- 5 days a week with duration of minimum 9 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.

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?

How will you be part of progress?
