MSE Logos

The MSE logo is the NC State brickTM with the department name spelled out in the Univers font. No ampersands are allowed or shortening of the department name when using the trademarked brick logo. The Univers font does not need to be loaded on your system if you are only using the image. If you want to do copywriting that uses the NC State fonts, you must download Univers and Glypha. However, Arial and Roboto fonts may be used in their place as an approved alternate substitution.

  • The JPG files should be used for PowerPoint, Microsoft Office documents and the web
  • The PNG files offer a transparent background and are good for student research posters or overlaying photos
  • The SVG files have been created as line-art vector files and are the only logos that should be used for print, embroidery, engraving, screen-printing, or other physical media because vector files will print cleanly at any scalable size

If you need other color variations or file formats of our logo, please contact our Department Communicator, Niki Jennings  | |  919.926.8094.
