Are you a bachelor/master student with a background in Industrial engineering or mechatronics? Do you have technical knowledge on optical fibers? Do you like investigating and have a critical mindset? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Background information

The sector Development & Engineering (D&E) of ASML is responsible for the specification, design and realization of the products in the ASML portfolio. Within the sector D&E, the department Electronic Development (EDEV) defines, realizes and qualifies the electronic functions and modules of these products. In the Manufacturing & Equipment Engineering Source group within EDEV, we are the Industrialization Concurrent Engineering group that acts as the interface of the factory and field to the designers. We are responsible for creating crystal clear work instructions and introduce new products to the factory and field. Design review, product quality, cycle time, availability and cost reduction are our main focus, and the end goal is to create new products first time right.

Our functional competence covers industrialization of Cables/Bundles/Cabinets (FC21), Mains Distribution (FC22) and Safety Handling (FC23).

One of our main challenges is to secure product availability through failure rate analysis of spare parts so to ensure high quality products for customers.

Your assignment

One of the main responsibilities of Industrialization Architect (IA) is to define, maintain, execute and implement our Industrialization roadmap.

Every year study items are being defined for the coming year by IA. Part of the roadmap is the failure rate analysis of Optics Fibers and improving on industrialization aspects.

What is a spare? A spare is defined a part which we expect to fail and needs to be replaced to avoid increased downtime in the customer site.
Regular cables are not defined as standard spare parts, where fibers are.
Reasoning for this is the number of fibers we see are damaged in the field.


  • Gather all field/factory data possible 

  • Bucket issues into failures/root causes (RCA) - Failure rate analysis

  • Proposal on design improvements/signal integrity settings

  • Document findings and captured Lessons Learned

Throughout this internship you will be guided and mentored by IA and experienced engineer.

Your profile

To be the perfect match for this internship you:

  • Have an educational background in electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechatronics or any related field;

  • Have technical knowledge on optical fibers;

  • Have worked on projects in electronics, troubleshooting, data collection and/or statistical analysis;

  • Have experience with Microsoft Excel;

  • Have a critical and proactive mindset;

This is a graduation or apprentice internship lasting 6 months for 3-5 days per week starting as soon as possible.

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