This paper presents a set of new laboratory experiments developed in conjunction with an undergraduate course in magnetic design. The course has recently been reintroduced as a technical elective course where students learn the basics of inductor and transformer design. Five new laboratory experiments have been developed to cover magnetic concepts and to provide students with the hands-on experience in designing and building magnetic components. The paper presents an overview of the course, and highlights the new lab experiments in the course.
