Snow crystal, one of the essentials of Erzurum geography, expressing elegance and transparency has been used as a basic image in logo design. By using hexagonal motifs that are specific to the Seljuk architecture and art, this logo aimed to bring the city's cultural fabric to the future by using the Seljuk and Ottoman motifs, located in the historic core of Erzurum. Inwardly directed arrows in snow crystals intersect at the center. This means that all units of the university have a common mission in scientific, social and artistic sense. Outwardly directed arrows represent Erzurum Technical University’s determination to become a World class university through its quality of education and scientific research.
