The USTP Logo

The logo introduces images of atomic particles linking together forming a stylized map of Mindanao Island, with a hint of traditional weaving patterns representing the rich, thoughtful, and skillful people from the Southern Philippines. It features a starting point to the year 1927. The images of atomic particles represent the students, staff, and faculty—the strong community committed to excellence in the field of science and technology. 

The commitment to establish strong linkages with other stakeholders and to work hand in hand with broadened knowledge, experiences, and insights are artistically represented in the logo where part of the Mindanao map envelops into a visual illusion of a sphere gearing for a premier and globally competitive institution.
