Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the application process for this program has been adjusted. We still encourage you to apply. Read more about our coronavirus updates here.

ASML’s Supply Chain Graduate Acceleration Program is an opportunity for recent graduates to work at our headquarters in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, at the heart of one of the largest supplier networks in Europe.

The ASML Supply Chain Graduate Program is similar to traineeships, but we allow you to specialize in a specific field instead of doing job rotations across the company.

In the Supply Chain Graduate Acceleration Program, we provide you with the opportunity to learn about a broad range of operations, from securing on-time delivery of materials and interacting with suppliers to optimizing inventory levels across our warehouses and reacting to customer demand.

Applications open

Applications for the ASML Supply Chain Graduate Acceleration Program are open until August 23, 2021
