If you don’t have a Master’s degree comprised of 120 study points in a STEM subject (science, technology, engineering or mathematics), but still feel you’ve acquired similar competency from continuing education and/or work experience, you can apply for special admission through Tekna’s Admission Council.

By becoming a Tekna member, you’ll be part of a large and valuable professional network comprised of knowledgeable academics in the fields of science and technology.

You’ll have the opportunity to attend courses and member events for both socialization and professional development. Tekna also gives you access to salary statistics and helps you during salary negotiations.

You can get help to look for a new job, review your employment contract and get legal advice if you have any questions or problems concerning your employment situation. It’s also possible for you to get help for any private legal issues you might have.

Tekna provides members with good offers and discounts on both insurance and banking services.

If you’re self-employed, Tekna has specially designed plans for banking, insurance, legal help and mentoring.

In order to join Tekna, you must have completed a Master’s degree (or hovedfag/civil engineer degree) comprised of a minimum of 120 study points in a STEM subject (science, technology, engineering or mathematics), or be a student planning to complete this type of education.

If you have a foreign educational background that differs from the Norwegian academic model, you can apply to receive recognition from NOKUT which confirms that your degree corresponds to a Norwegian Master’s degree.

It’s also possible to apply for special admission through Tekna’s Admissions Council.

We usually answer you within two days, but during busy periods it might take a little longer to get back to you.

You can do this by logging on to My Tekna. Your user name is your registered e-mail address.

If the information appearing on "your profile" about your education is incorrect, and you’re unable to change this information yourself, let us know by sending in the contact form.

Of course you can! When you recruit members, you help expand Tekna’s network – and you get a great prize, too. Recruit new members here: tekna.no/verving

To cancel your membership, fill out a cancellation form (in Norwegian) on My Tekna.

If you’re a regular employee, the membership cost is NOK 4, 860 per year (2022 rate). In addition, you pay annual dues between NOK 144 and NOK 300 to your local branch. Your dues will be charged starting the month you become a registered member.

Students pay NOK 150 per semester.

Our standard billing is to send semi-annual e-invoices/invoices in January and June each year. If you join in November, you will receive an invoice that covers the month you became a member and the remaining portion of the current year.

If you wish to change the payment frequency, you have the option to set up a direct debit (AvtaleGiro) with monthly payments through "My Profile" once you have an active membership.

Tekna gives dues reduction options to people who are experiencing different life situations.  

You can see if there’s anything that applies to your situation here.

You can set up eFaktura and AvtaleGiro accounts on your online bank. Choose Tekna from the drop-down accounts and services list and type in both your eFaktura reference: 00 + your Tekna member number, or type in this account: 1503.71.57829 for AvtaleGiro.

You can also set up an online payment agreement on My Tekna.

We usually send out invoices twice a year in January and July, but you can also choose to pay in quarterly or monthly installments. If you want to make monthly payments, you must first set up an AvtaleGiro or eFaktura account.

You’ll get reminders by e-mail, regular mail and – finally – telephone. If you have an outstanding balance that hasn’t been paid in the past twelve months, your membership will be cancelled. 

This is because eFaktura accounts do not belong to any one bank, which means that an eFaktura account will appear in all of your online banks up to the point it is activated. When this happens, it’ll appear in the bank where it was activated.

We’ve sent you an eFaktura account because you’ve selected "Agree to all payees" in your online bank. When you sign an eFaktura agreement with all payees, it means that the invoice from us will appear in your online bank (and maybe in Vipps) instead of in the mail.

If you want to stop the «Agree to all payees» service, do this in your online bank.

It costs NOK 150 per semester for students.

You’re a member until the actual date you cancel your membership. Your student membership automatically turns into a regular membership as soon as you confirm that you’ve graduated.
