Internship: Source Code Generation from System-level Interface Specifications

Computer science & software engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Computer science & software engineering


Are you a Bachelor graduate student or Master student looking for an internship in the field of Computer Science? Do you have C / C++ and Python experience? Then this assignment could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

The EUV Dose Control Software group is responsible for interfacing the Scanner system with the Source to generate EUV for exposing wafers with light. The interface between these two systems is crucial for generating the correct dose of light. Currently, the Dose Control Software group lacks a tool that can generate source code, documentation and simulation code from a single set of interface specifications that is easy to understand, maintain and extend.

Job Description

The goal of this assignment is to design a tool that generates source code, documentation and simulation code from interface specifications. You will do this by:
• Gather requirements for the tool;
• Investigate methods and tools to model and specify interface specifications;
• Iteratively implement the design to create a demonstrable product;
• Document the research, requirements and design specifications.


You are a Bachelor or Master student in Computer Science or related. C / C++ and python programming experience is required and you have worked in a Unix-like environment. Knowledge regarding Interface description language (IDL) is nice to have. Additionally, you have a problem solving mindset and have good interpersonal skills. The English language is required, both written and verbally.

This is a Bachelor graduation project or a Master’s apprentice internship for 5 days a week with duration ofminimum 3-6 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?
