Introduction

ASML US brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Chandler Arizona, San Jose and San Diego California, Wilton Connecticut, and Hillsboro Oregon.

This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Job Mission

The internship is a 12 week program with start dates 5/16, 5/31, or 6/20. We anticipate it to be on-site for Summer 2022.

Job Description

  • Work in a team environment alongside local experienced engineers.
  • Specific tasks will be tailored to match the education / experience level of the intern as well as the interns learning objectives for the summer.
  • The project will be centered around optics, opto-mechanics or lasers for metrology applications either in the lab or design-based. Previous projects have included polarization component characterization, optical path modelling and design of laser diode illumination system.
  • The goal of the internship is for you to learn about working in a corporate setting and to provide hands on experience solving real world problems in a team environment.
  • Interns will typically be required to document and present their findings as well as making an end of summer presentation to the group about what they achieved during their internship.

Education

Current active students in optical engineering related disciplines. Masters student preferred.

Experience

  • Passion for real-world applications in optics and/or opto-mechanics have the opportunity to contribute to ASML’s growing portfolio of laser or imaging-based applications.
  • Relative experience with optical design software such as Zemax or CodeV or 3D CAD software such as NX or Solidworks will help define the boundaries of the project.

Personal skills

  • Possess strong ownership characteristics and commitment to achieving results on time
  • Have strong written and oral communicative skills
  • Be a demonstrated “team player” with a quality orientation and interpersonal skills
  • Have strong problem solving skills and the ability to take initiative
