    A new hybrid methodology for the design of engineering devices is presented in this paper. This technique employs a topology optimization (TO) algorithm in order to obtain an initial design for a given device under consideration, followed by a parameterization routine which transforms the TO solution into a parametric model. Finally, this model is further optimized by means of a parametric optimization algorithm. The whole process is executed without any user intervention, and is able to deliver innovative solutions to problems in electromagnetic design. Results obtained on the design of a C-core magnet are shown in order to illustrate the applicability of the proposed method.
