The regalia of a Doctor of Science in Technology

The Ceremonial Conferment of Doctoral Degrees confirms you the right to use the regalia associated with the degrees of Doctor of Science in Technology or Doctor of Philosophy. The most important piece of doctoral regalia is the doctoral hat, which is identical for all doctors from Aalto University schools of technology. The lyre on the doctoral hat is made up of a golden flame, symbolising wisdom and work, ‘labor et scientia’, placed inside a steel ring surrounded by a golden laurel wreath. In addition to the doctoral hat, the Doctors of Science in Technology may wear some special regalia: the women a velvet brooch, and the men an embroidered velvet collar in their tailcoat.

The regalia of a Doctor of Philosophy consist only of the hat and lyre, which are identical with that worn by the Doctors of Science in Technology.

We recommend that you order the hat as soon as possible, since making the hat might take as long as two months. When ordering the hat, please be sure to mention that it is a doctoral hat for the Aalto University schools of technology. It is also possible to borrow a hat for the ceremony. In such a case, the hat should be that of a Doctor of Science in Technology, it should look new and be the right size.

The specially embroidered velvet collar worn by Doctors of Science in Technology embroidered on each end in black silk. Since the collar is permanently attached to the tailcoat, a hired or borrowed tailcoat cannot be used.

The lady doctor’s regalia include a black velvet 6x8-centimeter oval brooch, which has the same symbol as the hat lyre embroidered on it in black silk. The brooch is attached on the left side of the dress, below the collarbone (not too low). If the lady doctor is wearing other medals, the brooch should be worn on the left, in the place of the Star Brooch of the Order of the White Rose of Finland, below other official decorations. The brooch is worn at academic events.

You can also choose to wear only the doctoral hat at the conferment ceremony; the collar or the brooch are not necessary.
