About ATBU Logo
Logo are usually based on the culture of the people using it. Also, it is meant to depict the aims, aspirations, hopes and goals envisioned.
ATBU logo is derived from at least two of these sources: depicting a physical feature of its location whilst at the same time drawing attention to its aim and goals. The official interpretation of the logo is as follows: The logo embodies near the top of the shield, the nation’s national colors, emphasizing the Federal nature of the institution, the white portion of the colors being occupied by an open book, a common enough feature of educational institutions.

The sunrays atop the national colors are meant to convey the notion that education is a source of light that banishes ignorance and superstition thereby elevating the mind to levels that can grapple with societal problems. Bauchi, the location of the University, is on the edge of the Bauchi-Plateau with gently undulating topography occasionally punctuated by outcrops of inselbergs, either singly or groups. The lower part of the logo is meant to depict these inselbergs or hills in relief.
Finally, there is a communication tower with antenna on top of the hill. The antenna conveys the technological vocation of the University as well as the notion that the University should not only be a repository of scientific and technological information but also a source of dissemination and acquisition of such information globally to be made available for ready application.
