What is a Doctor of the Built Environment?

A doctorate is the highest-level academic qualification which a university can bestow. Doctorates are only awarded to those who demonstrate leadership in their chosen discipline by making a significant and original contribution to its specialist field of knowledge. The doctoral award is focussed on professional practice in the construction and property sectors. (University of Salford).
