Are you a Master student in Physics or Artificial Intelligence looking for a graduation project? Are you experienced in Matlab? Then this internship might be interesting for you!

Background information

The continuous stability of ASML’s machines over time is extremely valuable to its customers. Possible sources of instability are physical degradation of hardware components or changes to the state of the machine. Stability is achieved by means of a drift control loop that uses offline measurements to correct the “Scanner Baseline Constants” to the (sub)nanometer level.

Your assignment

The machines that are used are sensitive to noise and outliers in the measurement data, making high quality outlier removal algorithms crucial to achieve optimal stability.

For this project we want you to:

  • Employ artificial intelligence to remove the outliers;
  • Investigate the nature of the outliers;
  • Find out how they impact the model performance.

Your profile

To be the perfect match for this assignment you:

  • Are a Master student in Physics, Mathematics, AI, or a related field;
  • Are experienced in Matlab;
  • Enjoy taking initiative and ownership when working on projects.

This is a Master graduation internship with a duration of 3-6 months for 2-4 days a 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.

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.

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 of maximum €600 (plus a possible housing and free public transport), 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 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 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?
