In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Data science, Computer science & software engineering


Are you a Master student in the field of Data Science with knowledge on data preparation, machine learning techniques and statistics? Then this graduation project could be interesting for you!

Internship type: Master Graduation

Start Date: as of September 2021

Background Information

This is an assignment in the TwinScan Software Product architects group at the Architects department in ASML Development & Engineering.

Scanners in the field present different millisecond disturbances and the cause is not always known for a product line or a particular group of products. We have the hypothesis that these disturbances are connected with the machine configuration and we would like to test that hypothesis.

Your Assignment

The assignment is to automatically correlate unexpected disturbances with machine configuration using field data. The tasks are understanding the data, prepare it, pre-process and select the ML algorithm to automate this correlation root cause finding.

The assignment will be done using the KNIME open source data analytics tool, Python and data sources from the ASML’s Central Data Lake (or other supplementary sources).

Your Profile

• You are a Master student with a background in Data Science (must have) with Software Engineering skills (wish to).
• You have knowledge on data preparation, familiarity with machine learning techniques (e.g. Neural Networks, Pattern Mining) and statistics to interpret the results
• You have a proactive and curious character with a resilient approach to its own job.

This is a Master Graduation internship for 5 days a week with duration of a minimum 6 months.

For doing an internship at ASML, you need to be enrolled as a student at an educational institute during the entire duration.
