    Just noticed that this thread was resurrected from 2007. What's the deal?

    Ahh well, I'll add to it, since I wasn't on here when it started. I have a PhD in mining rock mechanics.

    My business card takes the following form.

    First Name Last Name
    BE (Hons) Mining, PhD, Professional Affiliations
    Position

    I don't use the Dr in front of my name on the card.

    I'll only use it if I'm filling out forms - I don't introduce myself as Dr so and so in a social environment. Too wanky and invariably leads to the question about what field of medicine I practice in.

    Although, in a professional environment its quite formal.

    Thank you,

    Decided to go with Ph. D.

    It was either that or a Dr. in front of my name and already have been asked to dispense medical advice.

    Common here is Dr. Prof. XXXXX or Dr. Ing. Prof. XXX
