Engineering optimization problems are often solved by using metaheuristic algorithms. Flower pollination algorithm (FPA) is a nature-inspired metaheuristic algorithm and FPA have been used in a variety of engineering problems. In this book chapter, the engineering applications of FPA and its variants are reviewed, and the applications include chemical engineering, civil engineering, energy and power systems, mechanical engineering, electronical and communication engineering, computer science and others. Further research topics are also outlined.
