In the UK (and probably elsewhere) Engineering Doctorates - EngD - have been on the rise for the last 10 years as an alternative to PhDs. Has anyone here done one? Know people who have? I know it's 4 years rather than 3, and there is some management and law coursework (for some of them at least) and that you get a much higher stipend because half your work is with a company. But how have EngD canditates fared after they have their degree? Do they stay with their companies? move onto research?
