Mechanical Engineering Internship: Design a reusable version of an optical component

Location Veldhoven, Netherlands Degree Bachelor Experience Team Research & development Job category Mechanical engineering Travel Reference J-00253841-962


Are you a bachelor or master student in Mechanical Engineering? Do you have experience in CAD and knowledge in mechanical tolerances? Are you solution oriented? Then this internship might be interesting for you! 

Background information

The group Sensors Mechanics and Stage Positioning Modules is part of the Mechanical Development cluster and is responsible for the design of optical sensor systems, such as interferometers and image sensors.
During the design of high precision measurement systems, thermal expansion is considered critical and effort is taken to use materials of low Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE). The low CTE of these materials often comes with specific mechanical properties like brittleness and low strength, as well as high costs. Therefore, the ability to reuse these parts is considered beneficial.

Your assignment

The assignment consists of redesigning a rod and its interfaces of low CTE material including its couplings, which is connecting to critical parts of the metrology chain. The current glued design is supposed to become reusable. Thus, the focus is to reuse the expensive part of low CTE material but not necessary limited to it. The process of dismounting and remounting during the reuse approach needs to be considered as well. Therefore, you will:

  • analyze the current design;
  • create concepts for a reusable redesign and select one;
  • design a reusable version;
  • create a test plan for the sensitive connection.
  • Your profile

    To be the perfect match for this internship, you:

  • are a bachelor or master student in Mechanical Engineering;
  • have experience with CAD;
  • have knowledge regarding mechanical tolerances;
  • are solution oriented;
  • have great communication skills in English, both written and verbally.
  • This is a bachelor graduation or master apprentice project with a minimum duration of 5 months, 5 days per week, starting as soon as possible.

    Please note that we may only consider applicants who are enrolled as a student to a university for the whole duration of the internship.

    This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the United States Export Administration Regulations. Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.
