Computer Sciences | Software Engineering Internship: Image Sensor Simulator

Computer science & software engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Computer science & software engineering


Are you a Bachelor or Master graduate student in Computer Sciences, Software Engineering? Do you have experience with C, C++ or python? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Job Mission

The Image Sensor group creates sensors that are used to measure the light distortions, caused by the mirrors, with picometer-level accuracy.These measurements are used to calibrate the system in order to minimize these deformations, which could otherwise lead to defect chips. Part of the image sensor software is involved with decomposing the captured images into fundamental and orthogonal components, called ‘Zernike polynomials’.
In order to test the software without requiring a real scanner machine, the group now uses a set of test images, but more flexible and realistic test inputs are needed to cover different scenarios.

Job Description

In this internship you will be involved with:

  • Incrementally build a low level simulator that mimics the hardware behavior and protocols of a real image sensor.
  • Embed algorithms – made in Matlab – that can generate simulated sensor images into the software stack.
  • Drive these algorithms with parameters collected from the software context.
  • Create automated test scenarios that use the simulator in realistic situations [Optional].


  • You are a Bachelor or Master graduate student in Computer Sciences, Software Engineering or related.
  • You can work independently and have strong communication skills;
  • You have experience with C (it is a must have);
  • You have experience with C++ or python (it is a must have);
  • It is nice to have experience with Matlab;

This is an bachelor graduation or master apprentice internship for 5 days a week with duration of a minimum 6 months.

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.

Other information

What ASML offers
Your internship will be in one of the leading Dutch corporations, gaining valuable experience in a highly dynamic environment. You will receive a monthly internship allowance based on your educational level and number of days per week, plus a possible housing or travel allowance. 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.
