The Logo

The logo is the visual mark by which the University is known. It consists of three elements that can be used individually or in conjunction with each other.


University Seal

KFUPM Seal is one of the strongest emblems of King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals. It shows authority and authenticity to any communication where it appears. The Seal may be used on any KFUPM communication which reflects KFUPM’s mission or administration. The Seal has a formal and official quality to it.


Primary Logo

The symbol features the University’s famous water tower in the center, a Qur’anic verse circumvented immediately on top, the Holy Qur’an at its bottom, and the founding year of the University on the lower right in Hijri and lower left in Gregorian. The name in Arabic is circumvented on top while the English does the same at the bottom. These elements are bound by an octagonal border with a thick line.

Primary Logo without Quranic verse

With respect to the Qur‘anic verse, there is an alternate symbol that does not feature it. Use this alternate whenever the symbol will be in an environment where it is inappropriate for the Qur‘anic verse to be present.

The Logotype

The logotype is the special and specific way the name of the University is written and presented. It is done in both Arabic and English and comes in two variants: formal and informal.

The Acronym

Admittedly, the name of the University is quite long. For purposes of brevity in certain applications, an acronym is used in lieu of the full name. It is also in logotype form where the width of the Arabic name is twice the width of the English name.
