This training is intended to provide a better knowledge of phenomena and « physical understanding » applied to industrial products. Starting with the basic equations, the course includes several experiments illustrating magnetostatics, electromagnetics and magnetisation effects. This course is mainly oriented towards design engineers and technicians who want to discover, improve or recover their knowledge in magnetism for electric engineering applications.


  • Discover and update knowledge in magnetism
  • Learn the theory
  • Acquire « physical understanding »
  • Understand practical applications

Who should attend ?

Design engineers and technicians who aim to discover, improve or recover their knowledge in magnetism.
