Do you have a background in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science? Do you have good analytical skills and an interest in electrical waves and signals? Then this internship might be interesting for you!

Background information

Our department has a 192-channel data logger that would like to use in the future to measure a number of AC power signals (voltage, current, frequency, power factor) collected within the same time frame. Due to the large amount of time-based data on all channels, we need algorithms designed to mine the important information from the data. The algorithms should report information from each channel that satisfy the needs of our test reports.

Your assignment

The intern shall be given the task of developing algorithms to mine data produced by the 192 channel data logger. The path of development is as such:

  • Understand structure of data sets and the fundamental algorithms used to mine power data. The intern will become familiar with the components of our reports and how the algorithms can be used with the data to reach the objective.
  • A platform will be chosen and documentation describing the functions of the algorithms will be developed.
  • Coding of the algorithm and development of relevant documentation.
  • Testing of the coded algorithm on various data sets. Refinement and review of documentation.
  • Presentation of algorithm performance and knowledge transfer to the ASML engineering team.

Your profile

A suitable candidate would have the following:

  • Educational background in mathematics, computer science, electrical or mechanical engineering
  • Computer programming in MATLAB and/or Python.
  • Understanding of electrical waves and signals.
  • An understanding of Git, code control principles and good code organization.
  • Experience working with big data or large data sets.
  • Good personal organization and ability to work on their own.

This is a master/bachelor`s project that could be both an apprentice or graduation internship. The team is looking for a candidate ideally starting from August for 5-6 months 5 days a week.

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

This position requires access to U.S. controlled technology, as defined in the United States Export Administration Regulations. Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such U.S. controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access U.S. controlled technology.

ASML: Be part of progress

We make machines that make chips – the hearts of the devices that keep us informed, entertained and safe; that improve our quality of life and help to tackle the world’s toughest problems.

We build some of the most amazing machines that you will ever see, and the applications to run them. Never satisfied, we measure our performance in units that begin with pico or nano.

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. At ASML we are always pushing technology further.

Students: Getting ready for the real-world

Teamwork is key within ASML. Our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong and worldwide we form one big team with over 25,000 employees. These colleagues have 123 different nationalities and work at our major sites on three continents.

Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule. In this inspiring 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 your opportunity to get to know this world and get a feel for that excites you most. Use your education, gain real-life working experience and explore the world of high-tech – all at the same time.

How will you be part of progress?
