Partly this might be the differences between the BS,MS,PhD system in
England and US and the Diplom, Doktor, Professor aspect in Germany,
especially with a Diplom Ing from a FachHochschulen.  All changing of
course what with harmonization among the EU..


But, in any case, I think "Doktor" in Germany (essentially a professional
qualification) is quite different from "PhD" in the US (an academic
qualification)
