Are you a Bachelor student in technical design? Are you an excellent communicator? Then this internship might be interesting for you!

Background information

The D&E MC OCD Competence Center group enables other groups at ASML to be successful by providing guidance and design rules on pressure designs and gas safety architecture. Scope of the group is ASML-wide, cross-sector and cross businessline. As such the group is a great place to develop networks and learn about different aspects of the company.

Your assignment

One of the challenges for ASML is to prevent corrosion in water circuits, specifically corrosion caused by stagnant water around O-rings. Via Zeiss ASML received access to Intellectual Property designed to prevent such corrosion, called the '3S Seal'.
Goal of this assignment is to implement this IP into a set of actual designs at required sizes, and to standardize these designs to the point where any ASML designer who needs an O-ring/seal can simply select the appropriate 3S Seal as a standard component.

Your profile

To be the perfect match for this internship you:

  • Have experience with technical designing;
  • Preferably have experience with UX;
  • Are an excellent communicator.

This is Bachelor apprentice or graduation internship lasting 6-12 months, 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.

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?
