Internship: Release of plastic 3D printed materials for volume production

Mechanical engineering

Chemistry & materials science

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Mechanical engineering, Chemistry & materials science


Are you a Bachelor or Master student in Mechanical Engineering or Material Science and do you have experience in CAD programming? Then this internship could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

The main challenge of ASML is to continue Moore’s law by making it possible to produce smaller chips with a higher accuracy and speed. To establish this, ASML machines should continuously be improved on wafer positioning accuracy and production speed. The mechanics of the machine play a key role in the achieved performance. Their designs are on the edge of what is possible and every detail is important. Over 400 mechanical engineers are working on these challenges on a daily basis. As the components in the ASML machines are becoming more complex, new manufacturing processes are needed to realize these components. One of the possibilities is the use of 3D (additive) manufacturing processes like FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling), SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) and SLA (Stereolithography) in polymers. By using these manufacturing technologies, components can be realized with complex shapes and integrated functions like optimized manifolds, brackets, internal cooling chambers and cooling channels.

Job Description

Within the different additive manufacturing (AM) processes you will release materials for volume production within ASML. You will contribute to the release SLS Polyamide.
To reach this goal you will:
- Formulate test procedures;
- Define, model and order test-parts;
- Execute material tests according to the test procedures;
- Statistically process the test results and make a report.


You are a Bachelor or Master student in Mechanical Engineering or Material Science. You have experience in a CAD program, preferably NX. Additionally, experience in related projects is a pre. Good communication skills and a proactive attitude are necessary. The English language is required, both written and verbally.

This is an apprentice or graduation internship with a duration of minimum 4 months, for 4 to 5 days a week. The start date is as soon as possible.

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?
