Ladya boat was the logo of UTMN through generations. It served as a symbol of the development of Siberia and Tyumen region. Now, it remains a lucky charm among the students and a mascot of the university. 


The sign combines a three-dimensional letter “T” and the number “one”. The letter “T”, links together two symbols - the rapidly developing Tyumen region and University of Tyumen. The “one” stands for UTMN being the first university in Tyumen. This logo reflects the historical and educational leadership of the university.
