Job Mission

For this assignment, you will be part of the Metrology Wafer Alignment software group at ASML. The metrology wafer alignment software measures and models the physical variations of the silicon wafer in X&Y dimensions at the nanometer level, in a matter of milliseconds. This is of myriad importance to accurately build and connect the millions of transistors inside modern microchips.

Job Description

Your assignment will be to explore the application of  Domain Specific Languages to support the design and implementation of wafer alignment models for the next generation of ASML lithography systems.

This includes and requires the application of separation of concerns design principles, modern C++ concepts such as template and meta programming, mathematical C++ frameworks,  model driven development, and frameworks such as MPS or EMF.

The expected result will be that you will have gained experience in model driven software development in an industrial setting. The technical contribution of the assignment should be an extensible, tested, and well documented prototype that validates the application of DSLs in the design and implementation of the wafer alignment software. 


You are a bachelor or master student in Computer Science or Software Engineering, with an educational background in C++ / C, object oriented design & UML, Domain Specific Languages. Affinity with Matlab, unit testing, git, and working with algorithms is preferred. Willingness to cooperate and be part of a multidisciplinary team with a strong drive for software quality is a must.    

This is a graduation internship for 5 days a week with a minimum duration of 6 months. The start date is to be discussed. 

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. 

Other information

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?
