Teekkari cap is the most important symbol of technology student in Finland. The technology students in Finland adopted the cap from Sweden in late 1800s. In order to get the cap in vappu night you should do the proper teekkari baptism in Lake Saimaa on vappu and pre-order the cap. If you don’t do the baptism but have ordered the cap you can have it on the 13th of May.
Common order of the caps is made by the student union twice a year. The first round is on November and the second round in February. We recommend you to order the cap on the first ordering batch since it is significantly more affordable. The students who have ordered the cap will have a check which due date is typically in March-April.
