Introduction to the job

ASML US brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Chandler, Arizona, San Jose and San Diego, California, Wilton, Connecticut, and Hillsboro, Oregon.

The EUV Reticle Positioning Mechatronics Group, a division of ASML’s Mechatronics and Measurement Department, in Wilton CT is seeking a well-rounded intern to work on mechatronics, sub-nanometer linear motion control, product and system integration and/or software functionality, all specific to ASML products. The main focus will be mechatronics and control systems on advanced modules in lithography tools.

This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Role and responsibilities

The job requires a strong technical individual contributor to:

  • Technically own and drive the decisions necessary to complete the tasks.
  • Work with designers from supporting engineering disciplines in order to converge on an overall design solution.
  • Autonomously gather necessary information to conceive and propose options in order to meet the sub-module and sub-system level requirements.
  • Interface with module architects to derive requirements for the sub-modules.
  • Write performance specification documents at sub-module level and feed sub-budgets down to the lower levels.
  • Create sub-module level test protocol docs and subsequent test result analysis to prove sub-module and sub-system level performance specs are met.
  • Understand and be able to communicate the implication of sub-module level errors on higher module level performance and on other sub-modules.
  • Clearly communicate technical performance in both written and verbal presentations to stakeholders.

Education and experience

  • At minimum, candidate for Bachelor’s degree in a Science or Engineering discipline (such as Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, Electrical Engineering, or Physics), with at least 2 years completed or equivalent experience.
