The emblem of Koforidua Technical University consists of the artistic arrangement of two basic elements, which are unswerving with the core objectives of this noble Institution – Teaching, Research and Service to humanity. These elements are the Adinkra symbol and a Gear.
THE OVERVIEW OF ARRANGEMENT
The traditional Ghanaian Adinkra symbol “Nea onnim no sua a, ohu” is placed at the centre of the emblem. A Gear (in an orange) with blue outline surrounds the Adinkra symbol in a white background.
The name of the Institution (written on a blue background) can be found at the outer of the above elements and it is artistically designed to fit to the path of the circle to hinge on the slogan (in a white background) “Innovating for Development” at the bottom of the emblem.
