Physics | Data Science Internship: Sensor sensitivity to light aberrations


Data science


In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Physics, Data science, Mathematics


Are you a bachelor or aster student with an educational background in Physics, Data Science or Applied Mathematics? Are you familiar wit basic data analysis methods and tools? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Background information

Metrology is the brain of the ASML scanner. It is where all measurements come together to enable the correction potential of the system in order to achieve the best possible performance.

Your assignment

On the ASML scanner, alignments are performed using sensors, which are subject to inaccuracies in presence of aberrations. There is an ongoing study to verify how these inaccuracies can be predicted and compensated. The goal of the assignment is to contribute to this study by building MATLAB scripts and performing statistical analysis. The activities require to work in a small team in a multidisciplinary environment, analyze machine data, propose and validate models.

Your profile

  • You are a master or bachelor student with an educational background in Applied Mathematics, Physics or Data Science;
  • You are a master or bachelor student in their final year who wants to gain work experience, or a master student who islooking to do their graduation project;
  • You are familiar with basic data analysis methods and tools (MATLAB);
  • You have an analytical mindset;
  • You have good communication skills and proactive attitude;
  • Knowledge of statistical methods is a plus;
  • You are available to do a full-time internship with a duration 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?
