Highly homogeneous and high-field superconducting magnets arc difficult to be designed for its optimal configuration, which has the minimum winding volume. In this paper, we proposed an optimal design method utilizing a modified Genetic algorithm, which is newly developed, to realize the minimum winding volume design for multi-section superconducting magnets. The detail of the algorithm and two examples of its application to three-section superconducting magnets are shown.
