Mechatronics, Mechanical engineering, Other technical job categories


Are you a bachelor or master student at Mechanical, Mechatronics or Aerospace Engineering with focus on Computational Physics? Would you like to be involved with the state-of-the-art technology, innovation and multiple engineering disciplines? Then apply for an internship as Intern Analyst at ASML which could be the perfect starting step in your career!

Background information

ASML gives the world's leading chipmakers the power to mass produce patterns on silicon wafers. These chips are everywhere we look into, so is ASML. Semiconductors, Mobile devices, Healthcare, Mobility, Aerospace.

The Design Foundations, Sensors and Simulations (DFSS) department is part of the Cluster-Mechanical Development (MDEV). The team deals with the design of ASML sensor hardware and excels in creative solutions with ultra-precision in nm and pm scale. Within our “Mechanical and Thermal Analysis” groups, a part of DFSS, we create high quality analysis solutions to advise on design proposals in Multiphysics and Multiscale domains. We have a common vision towards creating the Digital Twins of our ASML Lithography machines.

Your assignment

ASML is working towards the goal of creating the first Digital Twins of ASML modules or systems. A core team of engineers will be carrying out different activities on different branches of this program. One major deliverable of this program will be the Physical Validation / Modelling.

This deliverable will consist of many components and stages like:

  • Multiphysics System Modelling with 0D, 1D modelling blocks with FMU/FMI Standards
  • Creating Reduced Order Models (ROM) from full FEM models and creating reduced blocks with FMU/FMI standards as well as other forms of functional system linear/non-linear components.
  • Able to link physical parameters to create Multiphysics representation of a chosen module
  • Support on experimental bench setup for validation & verification of system simulation models. Validate results with FEM or System models.

In this assignment you will work on delivering a Multiphysics/Multiscale system model composed of FMU blocks and/or other reduced models that’s representative of a selected ASML module.

Your profile

  • You are a bachelor or master student with background in Mechanical, Mechatronics or Aerospace Engineering and focus on Computational Physics.
  • You have followed courses on multiple physical domains. Heat Transfer, Elasticity, Dynamics, Fluid Mechanics. Mechanical and Thermal Analysis with FEM tools. (CFD is a plus).
  • You posses System Modelling capabilities with understanding of FMI/FMU standards within tools like MATLAB Simulink, Siemens AMESIM, ANSYS Twinbuilder.
  • You have some experience with Data Science and Machine Learning frameworks like TensorFlow, PyTorch, MODULUS (SimNet) and MATLAB NN. The ability to code with them will be considered a plus.
  • You are motivated to learn new things to challenge yourself.
  • You posses good communication skills in English, both verbal and written means.
  • You hold responsibility about your tasks given by the mentor/coach engineers.
  • You are creative and innovative in solution proposals.
  • You are proactive. Not afraid to speak up when things have to be done in different ways.
  • This is an internship for 5 days a week with duration of a minimum of 4 months. The internship could be consisting of more than 1 student working on this topic.

Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school for the entire duration of the internship.

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 €600 (plus a possible housing and/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?
