On October 24, Chengdu University of Technology issued a new school logo, with a small dinosaur on it that attracted the attention of netizens.
It is understood that the shape of the new school standard is circular, composed of elements such as the earth, dinosaurs, books, strata, the Chinese and English words “Chengdu University of Technology” and Arabic numerals 1956.

As early as 2012, the school used the little dinosaur school logo, but in 2014 it abandoned the dinosaur school logo and launched a new version of the school logo designed by the school’s communication science and art faculty team.
The dinosaur pattern in the center of the circle is replaced by the “geological hammer” and “工” with the letter ST as the main body, which represents the dominant academic background of the school at the beginning of the school.
Previous school standard
The return of the “little dinosaur” was expressed by many alumni: “Welcome to the return of the little dinosaur!”

It has social popularity and alumni recognition.
According to the official, the dinosaur’s shape is upright and tall, and its meaning fits the school’s spirit of “unwilling to be behind, dare to be the first”.
