Internship (DELFT): Concept design of a setup to measure the position of MEMS elements


Mechanical engineering

In a nutshell


Delft, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Physics, Mechanical engineering


Are you a Master student in (Applied) Physics or Micromechanics? Do you have affinity with high-precision and high-reproducibility system design? Then this internship could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

In the Delft office of ASML, we are developing a multi-beam electron microscope for in-line wafer inspection. A key module in this electron microscope is the MEMS module. After field-replacing a MEMS module, the new module should end up at the same position as the old one, within micrometer precision.

Job Description

You will be a member of our Agile Scrum team, which is responsible for design and delivery of the MEMS module. Within the team, you will be responsible for a concept design and trade-off for a setup that measures the position of MEMS elements relative to (mechanical) reference interfaces on the module with high reproducibility. Your design should be compatible for cleanroom operations and human safety. Depending on progress and time, we may start a detailed design phase or design a dedicated test first.


You are a Master student in (Applied) Physics or Micromechanics, You have an affinity with high-precision, high-reproducibility system design and aim for simple solutions. You have good communication skills in English and a pro-active approach in problem solving.

This is a Master apprentice internship or graduation assignment for 5 days a week with duration of a minimum 4 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?
