Are you a Master student with a background in Data Science? Do you have basic programming skills in Python? Then this graduation project could be interesting for you!

Internship type: Graduation

Start date: September 2021

Background Information

ASML designs, develops and integrates markets and services with advanced Photolithography systems used by customers – the major global semiconductor manufacturers – to create chips that power a wide array of electronic, communications and information technology products; These machines produce big amounts of data, whose value is only possible using Data Science. Curios about search and finding the pros and cons of the High Performance Cluster and KNIME software in collaboration with ASML employees to build machine learning models?

Your Assignment

You will use machine learning & pattern recognition to find output optimal scanner settings for our customers.
The assignment will include:
1.Getting familiar with ASML scanner productivity loggings.
2.Combine various data sources from various machines and apply machine learning/pattern recognition techniques to it.
3.Search for relations/patterns in the logging that can improve scanner output.
4.Write a report.

You will learn the software KNIME – namely KNIME Analytics Platform, KNIME Server and KNIME Web portal - to apply machine learning algorithms to scanner logging. Your study will demonstrate the benefit of machine learning for scanneroutput optimization. This is a practical exercise as it will be applied on scanner data used by our customer support. You will also experience working in a high-tech company within a multicultural team.

Your Profile

• You are a Master graduation student in Data Science.
• Basic programming skills are required in preferablyPython.
