Are you a bachelor or master student with an educational background in Mechanical Engineering or Material Science? Do you have experience in NX or other CAD program? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Background information

The main challenge of ASML is to continue Moore’s law by making it possible to produce smaller chips with a higher accuracy and speed. To establish this, ASML machines should continuously be improved on wafer positioning accuracy and production speed. The mechanics of the machine play a key role on the achieved performance. Their designs are on the edge of what is possible and every detail is important. Over 400 mechanical engineers are working on these challenges on a daily basis.

As the components in the ASML machines are becoming more complex, new manufacturing processes are needed to realize these components.
One of the possibilities is the use of 3D (additive) manufacturing processes like FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling), SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) and SLA (Stereolithography). By using these manufacturing technologies, components can be realized with complex shapes and integrated functions like optimized manifolds, brackets, internal cooling chambers and cooling channels.

Your assignment

Within the different additive manufacturing (AM) processes you will release ceramic materials for volume production within ASML.
To reach this goal during the internship you will be expected to:

  • Formulate test procedures;
  • Define, model and order test-parts;
  • Execute material tests according to the test procedures;
  • Statistically process the test results and make a report

Your profile

  • You are a bachelor or master student with an educational background in Mechanical Engineering or Material Science;
  • You are looking to do an apprentice internship or your bachelor graduation project;
  • You preferably have experience in NX or other CAD program;
  • You are proactive with good communication skills
  • The English language is required, both written and verbally;
  • You are available to do an internship for 4-5 days a week with a duration of 4-6 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?
