Indoor Environment Center

About The IEC

The Indoor Environment Center (IEC) conducts interdisciplinary research, knowledge transfer and outreach activities to support the development of indoor environments that are more safe, more thermally, visually and acoustically comfortable, and that minimize the use of energy and other resources. The IEC is housed in the Department of Architectural Engineering, but affiliated faculty and staff come from a variety of Penn State campuses, colleges and departments. The IEC is affiliated with and supported by the College of Engineering Environmental Institute and the Penn State Institutes for Energy and the Environment.
