In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Mechanical engineering, Other technical job categories


Are you a master student with an educational background in Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Business Information Systems? Do you have have experience with assembly processing or use of simulation models? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Background information

The assembly of a full lithographic machine or even a simple module might need hundreds of process steps. Making multiple products in the same facility with different production times and variation is a real challenge. Using so-called plant/process simulations help to find bottle necks and improvement areas. Connecting this with big data results of historical data can create a real digital factory.

Your assignment

During this internship you will be expected to:

  • Collect and or develop opportunities for plant simulations within the design/production of a product;
  • Execute a case study using the simulation software;
  • Divert factory processes;
  • Give evaluation and recommendations how to implement.

For simulation we use Siemens Tecnomatix Plant Simulation

Your profile

  • You are a master student with an educational background in Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Business Information Systems;
  • You are looking to do your graduation project or gain work experience;
  • You are friendly and open-minded;
  • You are creative and can work under pressure;
  • You have experience with assembly processing or use of simulation models;
  • Knowledge of Tecnomatix is a nice to have but not required;
  • You are available to do an internship for 4 days a week with a minimum duration of 5 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?
