ASML brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers – to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States. We are currently recruiting for internships located at our office in San Diego, CA (EUV laser source creation).
As the world’s leading semiconductor lithography machine (the machine that makes computer chips) manufacturer, ASML enables chip manufacturers to make cheaper, faster, chips, thereby enabling all the technology you use today. The machines we make require high speed, magnetically levitated stages with sub-nanometer accuracy, robotic mask delivery systems, mechatronic devices to shape and correct the laser illumination source, and optical modules that can detect sub-nanometer alignment errors and pattern distortions. Temperature controlled to milli-kelvins, particulate free, and operating in complete vacuum, the technical challenges are endless. Solving these requires expertise in servo controls, mechatronics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, embedded software engineering, optics, physics, manufacturing, industrialization, and more. If you like extreme challenges and want to help bring the next generation of technology to the world, then come join ASML.

One Company, One Goal, Limitless Innovation. It's our people that make the difference.
The engineer shall assist with the mechanical and opto-mechanical design of next-generation optical and mechanical sub-systems for the creation and control of EUV radiation and supports the development & integration of innovative core technology elements and/or system concepts into engineering solutions. Requirement is to perform a variety of engineering tasks including designing, developing, testing, analyzing, troubleshooting and implementation of subassemblies and modules. Works with the Optical engineer to develop mechanical mounting solutions for optical systems, including interactive tolerancing reviews. Subsequent design activities may include supervision of stress and thermal analyses of mounted optics and tolerance distribution, plus assignment and completion of Engineering Change activities (including use of sub-contractor resources).
Researches and works with supply chain engineering to select future key suppliers for consideration as turn-key providers of sub-systems. Develops robust and reliable resolutions to broad design and critical issues that impact design/manufacturing successes or to address future concepts, products, or technologies. May assist in the negotiation of major contracts involving large dollar amounts and monitors the cost, schedule, and performance aspects of key sub-contractors. Coordinates purchasing activities with engineering and manufacturing departments to source critical supply requirements and drive new product development.
