Engineering systems have been designed to facilitate society. These systems can be seen everywhere in our daily lives ranging from electrical systems to mechanical systems, and from bio-medical systems to industrial systems. With tight coupling with information and communication technology (ICT), these engineering systems can be even controlled and monitored remotely. These systems are supported massively with sensors through which they capture enormous data, which is then used to improve the performance of the systems. Moreover, complex processes are involved in the overall functioning of these engineering systems. The management of data and processes within these engineering systems has been done through traditional ways such as database management systems or spread sheets, however, involvement of multiple parties makes these engineering systems more complex to operate, track, and audit. Blockchain technology has the potential to replace traditional database systems and offers a level of trust in an untrusted environment. With features of immutability, traceability, transparency, availability, and decentralization, blockchain technology is a good match for engineering systems. Blockchain technology can help in supply chain in these engineering systems, but it can also be used to facilitate data, process, and parties. Considering enormous applications of blockchain technology in engineering systems, this Special Issue in Wiley Engineering Reports invited for the original scientific and technical contributions.
