Investigate and test alternative 3D modeling software for ASML systems bij ASML


Background information

You will be part of a small team of software engineers who work from the applications business unit of ASML in Eindhoven, reporting to Brion in San Jose (US). The team is best described as a small startup within the bigger ASML organization. The focus of our team is on software applications that improve the performance of ASML systems, using modeling and simulation software. For certain capabilities we use a specific third party 3D kernel in our software and we would like to investigate alternatives that could potentially replace the current choice of the 3D modelling kernel.

Your assignment

Within ASML you will:

  • Investigate various alternatives of 3D modeling software, compare them using existing test suites and report this comparison. Possible evaluation areas are runtime, accuracy, flexibility, maintainability, etc.
  • Choose viable alternatives from the research and investigate their advantages or disadvantages when applied in our specific use case, by (partially) rewriting our software to use one or more of the different investigated kernels, as prototype development.

When you are interested in a graduation internship, additional assignments can be developed.

Your profile

You are a master student in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or a related discipline. You have good communication skills (both written and verbal) and a good command of the English language. Furthermore, you have experience with C++, Python and Unix/Linux environments. You are proactive and can work independently. Experience with 3D modeling or programming is highly preferred. This is an apprentice internship for a period of 3 months or longer. The number of days per week can be discussed. The start date will be as soon as possible. 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 from anyone. We love what they 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?
