Are you a MBO or Bachelor student in the direction of Computer Science or Software Engineering? Are you looking to put your skills to use by investigating WebAssembly technology to make demo applications? Then this internship might be interesting for you!

Background information

Many teams in ASML Business Line Applications (BL Apps) dept have set of tools and scripts that are in use for multitude of utility applications like test data generation and diagnostic plotting. These tools and scripts are mostly running offline and are not shared and maintained to be used by the whole department. Some examples of these tools include waferData visualization tool, testData generation tool, and third party measurement data conversion tools. These tools and scripts are made using multiple languages (Java, Python, MATLAB, Julia...) making it difficult to have all of them accessible as web application. WebAssembly is a new technology that allows to run applications that are written in languages like Java, Python, C++, C#, MATLAB, Julia directly on browsers with near native speed, thereby opening opportunity to deploy existing applications as webApps without rewriting the applications in another language.

Your assignment

The goal of this project is to investigate webAssembly technology for ASML use cases and use it to make demo applications. Expectation is to migrate a couple of utility applications that are now standalone desktop apps to webAssembly be available directly on a webSever (e.g. VCP platform). Some examples that that are good candidates for POC are: (ADEL)Data Creation tools , Third Party data conversion tools, simple visualization tools for quick check, (without the need to go through all the process of IAct data ingestion). In addition to the example applications, expected output of the project is a manual on how to deploy similar applications on webAssemby.

Your profile

To be a perfect match with this internship assignment, you:

  • Are a Vocational (MBO) or Bachelor student in the direction of Computer Science or Software Engineering;
  • Have knowledge of WebDevelopment and basics of Linux, rest APIs and Microservice deployment are a plus;
  • Take initiatives and are able to work independently;
  • Able to deal with multiple stakeholders.

This is a MBO/Bachelor apprentice or graduation internship lasting 6 to 9 months, 3 to 5 days per week, starting as soon as possible.
Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school for the entire duration of the internship.

How will you be part of progress?
What ASML offers
Your internship will be in one of the leading Dutch corporations, gaining valuable experience in a highly dynamic environment. You will receive a monthly internship allowance of 600 euro (maximum), plus a possible housing and/or travel allowance. In addition, you’ll get expert, practical guidance and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic, innovative team environment.

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 software 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.

Students: Getting ready for real-world R&D
Pushing technology further is teamwork, and our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong, with major sites on three continents. Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule.

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 your opportunity to get to know this world of industrial-strength R&D and get a feel for that 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?
