Abstract This course covers the design of superconducting magnets for particle accelerators and detectors. The lectures are intended for physicists and engineers working in the areas of magnet technology and applied superconductivity, and interested in basic principles, physical parameters, analytical and numerical tools used for superconducting magnet design. For each of the applications considered, the courses will start by presenting the properties and characteristics of superconducting strands and cables. The main concepts related to magnetic design and coil lay-outs will be then outlined. In addition, the lectures will deal with the mechanics and fabrication techniques of a superconducting magnet, focusing in particular on coils and the structural components aimed at containing the electro-magnetic forces and managing the stresses. Finally, a description of the different systems devoted to cool and protect a magnet after a quench will be provided.
