Real world applications of category theory

I was reading some basic information from Wiki about category theory and honestly speaking I have a very weak knowledge about it. As it sounds interesting, I will go into the theory to learn more if it is actually useful in practice.

My question is to know if category theory has some applications in practice, namely in engineering problems.

I have already read this Applications of category theory and topoi/topos theory in reality

and the answers are only about programming which are not very interesting from my point of view.

Any comments are welcomed, thanks in advance.


The blog entry “Why Category Theory Matters” by Robert Seaton ends with a quite impressive reference list of applications of category theory to the sciences:
