In 1997, NPUST offered a public call for designs of the new university emblem. A university emblem design was chosen by the deliberative committee after 5 rounds of selection. President Liu handed out an award to the university emblem designer, Ms. Yin-Jie Lin, at the celebration of the upgrading to National Pingtung University of Science and Technology. This university emblem symbolizes the educational policy of NPUST, i.e. to cultivate professional, international and holistic qualities in hopes of becoming an internationally distinguished university.
