Teekkari cap

Every city, where engineering can be studied, has its own Teekkari cap and its own regulations to use it. In Oulu the shape of the cap is roundish and a black string starts at the end of droplet at the right side. Number of knots in the string tells how many Wappus teekkari has survived and it’ll be (tried to) straightened in the graduation ceremony. A cockade in the middle of the front black “ribbon” shows the guild student belongs to. In the droplet can be seen another cockade to inform that its owner have been sitting in the board of the guild or been otherwise extremely active in it.

Freshmen will need to buy their own caps, but it is giving to them in Wappu morning when they are initiated to Teekkari after several happenings. (yhistä Fuksikasteeseen) Even though Teekkari cap is your own, there are a lot of regulations concerning it. For example it can be used freely between Wappu and Cap descending ceremony (31 September) otherwise the permission must be requested from Oulun Teekkariyhdistys (OTY). If you need to apply for one, contact Culture Pig (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

 

General instructions for ordering the Engineering student Cap 

Engineering students cap can only be ordered through Oulun Teekkariyhdistys (OTY). They are ordered collectively in the beginning of the academic year and they will arrive in the end of April. Separate orders are not made. Please pay attention to this especially if you are only six months in Finland.

 
Engineering students caps are handed over in the following years Wappu (May Day) morning 1.5. at 04:00 in the ceremony place.

 
For freshmen to receive their caps they must achieve 4 points per columns 1-8 (9. column is voluntary) of their freshmen passes and they must attend to the ceremony held on 30th of April.

 
If you do not receive your student cap on Wappu morning you can get it from the mother’s day (second Sunday of May) ceremony or from Teekkaritalo’s service hours until 30.9. (every Monday 11.00-14.00 at Teekkaritalo if not otherwise said. Please see the calender in home page).
 If the cap is not picked up due to that date the caps ownership is transferred to Oulun Teekkariyhdistys (OTY). With good reason and earlier agreement with Oulun Teekkariyhdistys, student caps pick up date can be extended.
