Mechanical Engineering Internship: Raised Floor Tiles

Mechanical engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Mechanical engineering


Are you a Master student with a background in Mechanical Engineering? Do you have demonstrated abilities on statics, materials or dynamics? Then this internship assignment could be interesting for you!

Job Mission

Raised Access Floor Systems are highly used insemiconductor fabs to provide a high-load work surface with quick access and air flow distribution. ASML designs tools to be used in customers fabs, however, floor loading requirements is a grey area for the whole semiconductor industry. On one hand, SEMI misses to detail the allowable type of loads over a raised floor panel and on the other hand raised floor manufacturers test and verify tiles using different standards. As a result:
– Designing tools according to SEMI is ineffective and cannot secure that high loads can be handled;
– There are different standards for tile verification which complicates the extraction of a single design specification;
– Great variation of load capacities per fabs allows limited flexibility for designs.

Job Description

The tasks of this internship are to set up a testing strategy for different type of tiles and loads; perform mechanical analysis of critical load cases to extract design rules and floor load requirements for ASML and customers and tocommunicate with stakeholders for information alignment.


You are a Master student Mechanical Engineering with demonstrated abilities on:
• Mechanical design exposure to statics, dynamics, material properties and material behavior (e.g. die-cast aluminum, ECColorex);
• 3D solid modeling for design conceptualization and realization;
• Mechanical analytical techniques, including Finite Element Analysis such as stress / strain / deformation,(ANSYS,COMSOL).

You need to derive conclusions from analysis and make practical recommendations. Technical writing, communication and presentation skills are needed.

This is a Master apprentice or graduation internship with a duration of minimum 5 months. The start date is in November 2020 or February 2021.

Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school for the entire duration of the internship.

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.

How will you be part of progress?
