This regulation refers to the Professional, Engineering and Enterprise Doctorate Degree. A Professional, Engineering or Enterprise Doctorate is awarded by the University in recognition of the successful completion of a period of advanced study and research, the results of which show convincing evidence of the capacity of the candidate to pursue research and scholarship and make an original contribution and substantial addition to knowledge. Such degrees present the intellectual challenge and rigour of a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree but are enhanced by additional discipline-specific support and/or taught material in professional and technical areas. They are designed to meet the specific needs of a professional group external to the University, develop the capacity of individuals to work within a professional context and with which they are required to engage in a pedagogic context.
This regulation sets out the regulatory framework by which the Professional, Engineering and Enterprise Doctorate Degree is governed and includes specific content on admission, progression and examination of the thesis.
