This paper presents two engineering design problems, both of which were solved by evolutionary algorithms. The evolutionary approach is used in universal electro-motor geometry optimization and integrated circuits area/time optimization. In the first case we improve the efficiency of a universal motor; where the goal is to find a new set of independent geometrical parameters for the rotor and the stator with the aim of reducing the motor's power losses, which occur in the iron and the copper. In the second case we improve some parts of the high-level synthesis process of integrated circuits by considering the concurrency of operation scheduling and resource allocation constraints to ensure a globally optimal solution in a reasonable time.
