The President's Insignia

DTU's Rektorkæde

The President’s ceremonial chain of office was presented to the College of Advanced Technology (now DTU) by the Danish Society of Engineers in 1917.

The solid gold chain was designed by architect Gotfred Tvede and Kaj Bojesen and crafted in Kaj Bojesen’s silver smithy. The triple stranded chain bears a medallion of H.C. Ørsted, the founding father of the University.

The chain is worn by the President on official occasions.
