Software Engineering | Computer Science Internship: Design and test ASML motion controllers

Computer science & software engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Computer science & software engineering


Are you a bachelor master student with an educational background in Software Engineering, Computer Science or similar? Do you have experience with programming languages C and Python? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Background information

The DUV Imaging motion group is responsible for the correct adjustments of all elements in the optical path of the ASML DUV machines.
This is being realized by high performance motion controllers which run on a baremetal board.
Currently these motion controllers are only tested on high level. In order to further improve our quality and coverage of our tests, we want to investigate on how we could test these motion controllers in a simulated environment.

Your assignment

During this internship you will be expected to:

  • Create a design for a test suite;
  • Test these motion controller as standalone application and follow the test automation guidelines of ASML;
  • When the design is finished, implement it in C/python together with some tests to prove the functionality;
  • As a last step you need to connect this test suite to the automated test scheduler.

Your profile

  • You are a bachelor or master student with an educational background in Software Engineering, Computer Science or similar;
  • You are a bachelor student looking to do your graduation assignment or a master student who wants to gain work experience;
  • You can work independently;
  • You are a pro-active and goal-oriented student, with good communication skills;
  • You have experience with programming languages C and Python ;
  • You are familiar with Linux and test automation;
  • Your English language skills are excellent, both verbally and in writing;
  • You are available to a full-time internship 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?
