Rationale behind the Logo of IIT Ropar
The word Punjab is derived from words that means ‘five rivers’ (Beas, Satluj, Ravi, Chenab, and Jhelum).’ ‘Punj’ means "five" and ‘aab’ means "waters", so, "Punjab" means "land of five rivers."
This is the main focus of this logo, ‘the five rivers.’ The logo of IIT Punjab (Ropar) has a deep inner meaning. The meaning goes like this:
Constructs in the logo
Several engineering students
five students in the logo and the gear
are working collaboratively
hand to hand
in Punjab (which is being nourished by five rivers)
Pentagon, five people and five tools
using different tools
five plows in the logo
to create or extract knowledge.
And, may HE (God/light) inspire them
