How Long Does It Take to Earn a Doctorate? An International Comparison.
McQueen, Douglas H.
European Journal of Engineering Education, v19 n2 p215-25 1994
The paths of university students from first matriculation to achievement of the doctorate are compared for nine technically-oriented universities in six countries. Although the ages at which doctorates are awarded vary by 6 or 7 years, the amount of effort invested in research in preparation of dissertations varies little, from under 3 years to just over 3.5 years.
