Mechatronics Internship (non-thesis): Testing Environment for Piezo Mechatronics Test Setups


Are you a bachelor student in Mechatronics or Mechanical Engineering with an affinity for software and hands-on experience? Then this internship could be interesting for you! 

Background information 

The assignment will take place in a research environment and involves the development of the next generation piezo mechatronic components. The goal of the assignment is to improve the existing testing capabilities using the existing hardware: multichannel selection electronics (Arduino based, controlled via Matlab, or Speedgoat controller via Matlab), impedance measurement equipment, signal conditioning, power electronics and displacement sensor.

All the existing hardware is already integrated using Matlab and the system can be controlled remotely.

Your assignment 

The goal of the assignment is to automate the test environment and create automated test routines. You will be working along the ASML engineers on fundamental research.

1.             Integrate the existing HW and their Matlab tooling

2.             Perform validation measurements, to validate the test tooling

3.             Develop automated Matlab scripts to perform specific test routines

Your profile 

  •  You are a bachelor student studying Mechatronics or Mechanical Engineering.

  • You have an affinity with software.

  • You have hands-on experience (projects or hobbies).

Other information 

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 (plus a possible housing 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, computer science and many more non-technical related employees. 
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 the real world 
We’re a global team of about 28,000 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 the semiconductor industry, 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? Anything is possible! 
How will you be part of progress?
