Are you a Bachelor's or Master's student in Computer Science or Software Engineering? Do you want to gain expertise in Robot? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Job Mission

The Factory Automation and Factory Integration (FaFi) department is responsible for the interfaces that scanners offer to the outside world, so called system interfaces. Our customer fabs are becoming more complicated every day and data driven decision are used to define business strategies. Currently, FaFi is using a test framework (TWIST) that is developed in-house for testing the Semiconductor Equipment Communication Standard (SECS) interface. TWIST is becoming end of life. Therefore, FaFi would like to apply Robot, a popular generic framework supporting test automation, for testing the SECS interface.

Job Description

The goal of the project is to investigate how the Robot framework can replace the ASML specific TWIST framework. The challenge is to develop a modular set of keywords with readability, reusability, and flexibility in mind. Your tasks will consist of:

  • Gain expertise in Robot
  • Investigate the current SECS use cases in TWIST
  • Iteratively develop Robot keywords for testing the SECS interface.
  • Show the success of your design by applying them to the previously investigated SECS use cases.


  • You are a Bachelor's or Master's student in Computer Science or Software Engineering.
  • You have experience using Python.
  • You have experience with system-level thinking.
  • You have affinity with testing.
  • Having experience with the Robot framework is preferred.

This is a bachelor graduation or master apprentice internship for 5 days a week with a duration of a minimum 6 months. The starting date of this internship is beginning of September.

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