Job Category

Computer Science & Software Engineering


This is an apprentice internship for a studentin Embedded Software, Computer Science, or a related discipline.

Job Mission

The EUV Projection software group is responsible for the software of the projection system that makes images reticle patterns on the wafer with nanometer accuracy. The projection software utilizes several complex positioning and thermal control subsystems to accomplish this.
Availability of the machine is an important aspect that can be improved by enabling faster diagnostics of problems.
Our goal is to embed better diagnostic capabilities into the projection software’s architecture which supports a diagnostics tool that can be configured both at design and runtime to log any desired diagnostic data upon certain events.

Job Description

Introduce an architecture together with a prototype tool that exploits that architecture to enable run-time and design-time configuration of logging of diagnostic data. Examples of such diagnostic data are RequisitionLocals of hardware registers and RequisitionLocals of state variables in software components.

Your tasks will include:
• Gathering requirements
• Introducing a software architecture with the following aspects:
○ Plug and play; new software components or hardware must automatically appear in the diagnostic tool.
○ How to avoid having impact on machine performance, so that the system doesn’t crash, and production doesn’t slow down.
○ The software is distributed (over multiple hosts).
• Writing a program to demonstrate


You are a master’s student in Embedded Software, Computer Science, or a related discipline and you preferably have experience with C++. You are creative, curious, goal oriented and capable of working independently. You have good communication skills and you understand the RequisitionLocal of listening with the aim to understand. You are fluent in English, both verbally and in writing.

This is an apprentice internship with a minimum duration of 5 months.

Please keep in mind that we can only consider students (who are enrolled at a school during the whole internship period) for our internships and graduation assignments.

What ASML offers
Your internship will be in one of the leading Dutch corporations, gaining valuable experience in a highly dynamic environment. You will receive a monthly internship allowance of 500 euro (maximum), plus a possible housing or travel allowance. In addition, you’ll get expert, practical guidance and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic, innovative team environment.

ASML: Be part of progress
We make machines that make chips – the hearts of the devices that keep us informed, entertained and safe; that improve our quality of life and help to tackle the world’s toughest problems.

We build some of the most amazing machines that you will ever see, and the software to run them. Never satisfied, we measure our performance in units that begin with pico or nano.

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
Pushing technology further is teamwork, and our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong, with major sites on three continents. Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule.

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 your opportunity to get to know this world of industrial-strength R&D and get a feel for that 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?
