AbstractThis report composes an Industry Company Profile (ICP), which is an obligation to the faculty of Engineering Co-op office. This report is separated into three sections: 1. Industry Profile on offshore evacuation systems. 2. Company Profile on the Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT). 3. My role as an engineering work term student. In the Industry Profile I discuss the history of evacuation systems, discussing what type of evacuation systems have been used and are currently being used and the advantages and disadvantages of each. The Company Profile component of this report focuses on the Institute for Ocean Technology and mainly its first-class facilities. I also discuss the lifeboat performance project, and the life raft operational performance project. The last section of my profile constitutes my role as an engineering work term student in the company. It deals with my involvement with both the full scale and model scale tests on life rafts in January and April of 2005. It also discusses how I played an active role in the analysis of lifeboat tests in ice.
