Internship: Investigate opportunities for Cost of Goods reductions for Metrology Tools

Mechanical engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Mechanical engineering


Are you a Mechanical Engineering student with an interest in working on a completely new machine in a competitive market? Then this assignment could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

In order to achieve holistic lithography approach, it is essential to design and manufacture metrology tools like Yieldstar systems or the Multi-Beam inspection (MBI) tool. Yieldstar allows measurement of on-product overlay and focus and the MBI tool, dedicated for EUV lithography inspection, uses SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) to “see” at nanometer level with high throughput. As the metrology market is a highly competitive one, it is important to deliver flexible and modular architecture with a focus on Cost of Goods.

Job Description

Within the business line Applications you are going to work with the Yieldstar or MBI machine in order to define opportunities for cost of goods reductions by means of manufacturing (i.e. using additive manufacturing) and/or tolerancing. During the internship you will:
• Investigate areas for improvement within ASML metrology machines;
• Design cost-effective solution(s);
• Validate your concept: organize and prepare design review.


You are a Bachelor student in Mechanical Engineering or a closely-related field. The following criteria apply for this internship:
• Proficiency in Solid Modelling is required with Siemens NX preferred;
• Proficiency in making 2D drawing and application of Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) is required;
• Hands on experience and knowledge of machining and fabrication techniques is preferred;
• Accurate, systematic, analytical and problem solving approach;
• Goal-oriented and independent in work;
• Fluent English in word and in writing.

This is a Bachelor apprentice or graduation assignment for 4-5 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.

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?
