Mechanical Engineering Internship: Stick-slip effect investigation

Mechanical engineering



In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Mechanical engineering, Mechatronics, Physics


Are you a Master student in Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics or Physics? Are you both practical as theoretically strong? Then this assignment could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

You will be part of the Mechanical Development group that is working on the mechanical structures for the EUV Light Source that ASML is developing for its EUV Scanners.

Job Description

You will investigate stick-slip effects that can occur between mechanical frames. You will do this by following the following steps:
- Get familiar with stick-slip phenomena by studying literature. Document this by a summary.
- Investigate possible effects that stick-slip can have on system performance (based on theory, feedback from ASMLexperts/reports, brainstorm)
- Define a test to validate one or multiple of the expected effects.
- Execute the test in collaboration with the ASML test facilities and write a report.


You are a Bachelor or Master graduation student with a background in Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics or Physics. You are both interested in the practical and theoretical side of the internship assignment. Experience with simulation is required and knowledge of NX is a nice to have.

This is a graduation internship for 3-5 days a week with duration of a minimum 6 months. The start date is as of October/November 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.

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 applications 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. At ASML we are always pushing technology further.

Students: Getting ready for the real-world
Teamwork is key within ASML. Our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong and worldwide we form one big team with over 25,000 employees. These colleagues have 123 different nationalities and work at our major sites on three continents.

Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule. In this inspiring 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 and get a feel for that excites you most. Use your education, gain real-life working experience and explore the world of high-tech – all at the same time.
