Physics / Applied Mathematics Internship: Discover the World of Metrology



In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Physics, Mathematics


Do you have a background in Physics or Applied Mathematics? Are you currently in your final year of your Masters? Discover the world of Metrology during an internship at ASML!

Job Mission

Metrology orchestrates the behavior of powerful mechatronic modules, so that together they achieve an extraordinary combination of speed and accuracy. It’s basically the brain of ASML lithography systems.

An internship at the Metrology department of ASML is a great opportunity to experience working in a dynamic and international environment where you will be challenged daily to push technology boundaries further. We have multiple internship opportunities for students with background in physics and applied mathematics. You are not applying for a single vacancy but for multiple vacancies at the same time! By doing your internship at metrology, you will receive the ideal combination of ‘doing’ and ‘learning’ that will build the fundamentals needed for a technical career.

Job Description

As a physicist or mathematician, you could break new ground by developing computational models of physical phenomena, helping to optimize ASML systems. Or you could draw on all your knowledge to help improve the imaging, overlay and productivity of our tools.
Within functional metrology groups we have interesting assignments on algorithms and Data Analysis & Modeling.


To be eligible for an internship within the Metrology Department you must be in your final year of your Masters, with a background in Applied Mathematics or Physics.
You have a strong affinity to understand underlying physical concepts. Proficiency in MATLAB or Python is a plus. Additionally, you are an excellent communicator in English, both written and verbally.

The minimum duration of an internship assignment is 4 months.

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

More information on the allowances can be found on our website. In addition you will 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 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.
