Job Mission

With ASML's increasing focus on our sustainability, ASML has setup a very ambitious program to maximize the re-use of our parts. Throughout our company, teams are looking for opportunities to improve reparability and upgradability of parts, extend product lifetimes, and to avoid scrap. We expect the same from our suppliers, so we’re driving programs with our suppliers to also make their operations more sustainable.

With the growing business, ASML gets more defects parts from the field. Most parts are repaired by our suppliers, but our ambition is growing further; we want to re-use all parts.

Job Description

You will become member of a newly founded cross-sector Re-use department. The goal of this assignment is to help investigate the repair possibilities from defect parts that return from the field or from our suppliers. With our experts, you will learn how to assess the information at hand, and define proposals on how to get most value from the parts.


You are a MBO/Vocational or a Bachelor student with technical knowledge, since you will review technical documents (e.g., Mechanical engineering, Mechatronics, Electronics, etc.). You are curious and you like to explore different options to solve a challenge. Additionally, you are able to express yourself in English, both in words and written.

This is an MBO/Vocational or Bachelor apprentice internship for 4~5 days a week with a duration of a minimum 5 months. The start date is as soon as possible.

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