Visiting the Institute

    At the IEC we want to ensure that your interest – whether you’re a prospective student, a visiting professor, or a potential project partner – is converted into action. That means ensuring that you can reach us quickly and effectively.

    Of course you can always call or find us on campus at the University of Delaware:

    Institute of Energy Conversion
    University of Delaware
    451 Wyoming Road, Newark, DE 19716
    Telephone: 302-831-6200
    Fax: 302-831-6226
    Main office hours are 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

    The Institute of Energy Conversion is located in Newark Delaware, between New York and Washington and is well serviced by train, car and airplane. If you are coming from either New York or Washington the fastest option is the train service offered by Amtrak. The fast trains all stop at Wilimington, only a short distance from Newark. From further away, the closest airport is Philadelphia (PHL). There is a shuttle service from PHL to IEC for around $35. Bookings are available online or at the airport. There are other airports in the area but limited shuttles so a rental car is the simplest option. There is ample parking at IEC but be sure you get a visitors pass as soon as you arrive.
