Professional Doctorate


           A degree of doctor of philosophy by thesis is fundamentally an academic credential from which an advance knowledge is develop to lay foundation for further exploration. In contrast, a professional doctoral degree focuses on the solution of particular project which may have absolute commercial values and beyond that. Although such programs do help to develop research skills, the main focus is to apply theoritical knowledge into industrial needs to solve emerging problems. This varies from industrial invention (Industrial Doctorate) to industrial solution, veveloping a new breed of innovators for industrial growth. Literally the Professional Doctorate programs vary from Industrial Doctorate as it does not require patenting necessity for each and every minor modification. Two full years are ideal for industrial upgradation but in some cases, this duration will be reduced to one year. However, America has Doctor of Engineering program for advanced field, running over four years duration. The primary concern is the perpetual mean of solution but not the duration of the program.
