Software Engineering | Mechatronics Internship (non-thesis): Wafer Positioning Simulator

Computer science & software engineering


In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Computer science & software engineering, Mechatronics


Are you a bachelor or master student with an educational background in Software Engineering or Mechatronics? Do you have basic knowledge of Python programming language? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Background information

ASML is the market leader in developing photolithography systems for the semiconductor industry. A sub-function inside this sophisticated system is called “Wafer Positioning and Immersion group”. This group ensures the delivery of integrated embedded software solutions. Wafer Positioning within our machines is used to position the wafer carrier.

Your assignment

For software testing a simulator of the Wafer Positioning sub-function is needed for a virtual test environment. A new simulator needs to be created following existing examples. Therefore during the internship you will be expected to:

  • Get familiar with the ASML software environment;
  • Design Simulator for the Wafer Positioning sub-function;
  • Implement Simulator for the Wafer Positioning Sub-function.

Your profile

  • You are a master or bachelor student (final year) with an educational background in Software Engineering, Mechatronics or similar;
  • You are looking for an apprentice internship to gain work experience;
  • You have strong affinity with mechatronics;
  • You can work independently and have good communication skills;
  • You have an open mind and willingness to learn from your colleagues;
  • You have basic knowledge of Python programming language;
  • You are available to do a full-time internship with a minimum duration of 6 months.

Please keep in mind that we can only consider students (who are enrolled at a school during the whole internship period) for our internships and graduation assignments.

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?
