In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Computer science & software engineering, Mechanical engineering, Electrical engineering


Are you a bachelor or a master student with a background in Computer Science, Mechanical or Electrical Engineering? Are you experienced with C/C++ and possess good analytical skills? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Background information

The Machine Control (MC) department is responsible for the handling of the input interfaces, that scanners offer to the outside world, the so called system interfaces. Customers use these interfaces to operate ASML’s scanners. This is done mainly via an automation system. With the increasing number of interfaces that customers have at their disposal, our understanding of customer use becomes more complicated. Therefore, making knowledge driven decisions becomes more difficult, when designing new products or solving customer issues.

Your assignment

During your internship you will be expected to complete the following tasks:

  • Create a framework for the Twinscan Interface Usage Monitoring and experience the development life cycle;
  • Understand the Twinscan system level interfaces and how these interfaces can be used;
  • Understand the ASML software architecture;
  • Design a plug-in-based software framework that supports the collection of required data from different sources;
  • Deliver an extension to the Twinscan software producing a report that shows the usage of system interfaces. This reporting must adhere to ASML guidelines for reporting.

Your profile

  • You are a bachelor or master student with a background in Computer Science, Mechanical or Electrical Engineering;
  • You are a bachelor student looking to do your graduation project or a master student interested in gaining work experience;
  • You are experienced with C/C++, UML and requirements engineering;
  • You possess good analytical skills;
  • You are open minded and eager to learn from your colleagues;
  • You enjoy working within a team;
  • You are available to do a full-time internship for a minimum of 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

Change the world – one nanometer at a time
Become an intern at a Dutch company that’s a global industry leader. You’ll gain valuable experience in a highly innovative environment – one that sparks your imagination and creativity. In addition to a monthly internship allowance of maximum €500 (plus a possible housing or travel allowance), you’ll get practical guidance from experts in the field and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic team environment.

ASML: be part of progress
ASML is a high-tech company headquartered in the Netherlands. We manufacture the complex lithography machines that chipmakers use to produce integrated circuits, or computer chips. What we do is at the heart of all the electronic devices that keep us informed, entertained and connected. Every day, you use electronics that simply wouldn’t exist without our machines.

Behind ASML’s innovations are engineers who think ahead. The people who work at our company include some of the most creative minds in physics, electrical engineering, mathematics, chemistry, mechatronics, optics, mechanical engineering, and computer science and software engineering.

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.

Students: getting ready for real-world R&D
We’re a global team of about 29,000 people of 120 different nationalities and counting. Headquartered in Europe’s top tech hub, the Brainport Eindhoven region in the Netherlands, our operations are spread across Europe, Asia and the US.

In such an 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 the opportunity to get to know not only the world of industrial-strength R&D, but yourself – you’ll discover just what excites you most. Will you design a part of the machine, or make sure it gets built to the tightest possible specifications? Will you write software that drives the system to its best performance, or work side-by-side with the engineers of our customers in a fab, optimizing a system to the requirements of the customer?

How will you be part of progress?
