Meaning and history

RPI Engineers logo history


While the RPI Engineers logo has a pronounced retro feel about it, in fact, the emblem was only introduced in 2006. It features the letters “R,” “P,” and “I” going down in a diagonal line. The letters are red with black trim. The sharp and curvy “thorns” make the glyphs unique.
The previous version (1995-2005) sported a red eagle in flight. The bird had its wings spread wide and was holding a board housing the lettering “Engineers” in its claws. There was a triangle on the background.
