In 1969, Heikki Silván, a Helsinki-based engineering student designed the engineer’s iconic headwear; an octagon-shaped cap with a black tassel that has a violet-colored velvet cover. The cap is the main identity of every engineer and engineering student starting from the first year of study.
The cap is a great gift – it is as suitable as a graduation present, as well as for a person aged 50 or over.
A genuine engineering cap can only be obtained from the Union of Professional Engineers. Since 2011, the caps have been handcrafted by E.R. Wahlman Oy.
The price of engineering cap is 144€ for non-members and 99€ for members.
