The last decade has seen an explosion of research in network science, a science whose initial work and subsequent developments are grounded in statistical physics applied to natural systems. In recent years researchers in the engineering discipline have also taken a keen interest in complex networks which has resulted in several application areas being investigated in engineering. In this paper, we focus on network optimization and network dynamics in the context of engineered (human made) networks.
