Mechanical Engineering internship (non-thesis): Design creations for low defectivity

Mechanical engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Mechanical engineering


Are you a Bachelor student with a background in Mechanical Engineering? Do you have affinity with making small designs in CAD? Then this apprentice internship could be interesting for you!

Background Information

Our Mechanical Development Pellicle & Tooling group is a key-player in the realization of pellicle* related tooling and machines to enable the ASML NXE system roadmap. We deliver complete ASML tooling at customer side as well as within our ownPellicle work center. The core competence within our group is Precision mechanics within a multi-disciplinary environment.

The knowledge we develop during the tool/machine designs is secured within our main competence groups (i.e. Design for Defectivity andHandling of fragile parts). This way we’re able to secure and share the knowledge within our organization.

*Pellicle: Very thin film (< 50 [nm]) which protects the reticles for in-focus particles.

Your Assignment

The last two years we developed several tooling and machines with high focus on Defectivity. Within these designs a lot of ‘Design for Defectivity knowledge’ is “hidden”.
Your internship will focus on checking and reviewing designs to secure relevant ‘Design for Defectivity’ knowledge and translate this into design rules which will be used within our Design for Defectivity handbook.
Main tasks are reviewing designs and discussing with the design engineers of the specific designs on design choices to meet the defectivity specifications, translate defectivity design aspects into design rules and define test specifications to validate design rules.

Your Profile

  • You are a bachelor student with educational background in Mechanical engineering .
  • You are looking for an apprentice internship to gain work experience.
  • You have good communication skills (Dutch/English) and pro-active attitude in approaching colleagues to gather required input, e.g. curious about the why and keep asking questions.
  • You are able to work / have affinity with making small designs in CAD (preferably NX).
  • You are available for 3-5 days a week with a duration of a minimum 6 months.

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

Other information

What ASML offers

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.

How will you be part of progress?
