The aim of the present work is to investigate the effects of strong magnetic fields on the hadron-quark phase transition point at zero temperature. To describe the hadronic phase, a relativistic mean field (RMF) model is used and to describe the quark phase a density dependent quark mass model (DDQM) is employed. As compared with the results obtained with non-magnetised matter, we observe a shift of the transition point towards higher pressures and, generally also towards higher chemical potentials. An investigation of the phase transitions that could sustain hybrid stars is also performed.
