Meaning of the CPUT logo
The logo of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology visualises the identifying characteristics of the University: higher learning and technology, as well as its location at the southern tip of Africa.
The logo comprises four distinguishing elements.
- The waves symbolise technology, development and the flow of information. They are also a reference to the location of the University: the marine aspect of a peninsula.
- The two sections of the half shield encompassing the waves, illustrate a solid foundation of institutional integrity and excellence, supporting and encouraging dynamic forward movement, innovation and change, towards “Creating Futures”.
The shape of the shield subliminally evokes the outline of southern Africa and the traditional shape of a heart, emphasising the vision to be at the heart of technology education and innovation in Africa.
