Updated list of Institutions/Universities offering courses in Architecture and Urban Planning - 2014
Pakistan Council of Architects and Town Planners (PCATP) published the long waited lists of Accredited & Non Accredited Architecture & Town Planning Degree Programs. Click here to see the list of Non Accredited Programs on PCATP website.
Earlier in 2013, PCATP published the list of accredited institutions and later in August 2013 (PCATP Parents & Students Alert Published in Daily The News 21-12-2012 and mentioned in PCATP Newsletter). Then i pointed out in written form that a number of universities were offering non accredited degree programs in the country.
Finally PCATP broke the silence and stated that ".... It has been observed, with grave concern that the following Universities / Institutions have started programmes in Architecture and Town Planning without taking NOC from the Pakistan Council of Architects and Town Planners (PCATP)" ......
and further goes on
"All the aspiring students and their parents are, therefore, cautioned in their own interest not to apply for admissions to institutions that are not accredited or have not obtained NOC from PCATP. PCATP will not be held responsible for any objection in the future as the students of non-accredited institutions are not eligible to apply for PCATP Registration."
However, from my personal experience, if would suggest the perspective students and their families to keep in mind the goal of the student. If the student wants to work in government or for government institutions in the country after completion of degree, such as a recognized architect or urban planner , then you should only consider those schools which are accredited by PCATP. Or if the student would travel overseas for further education or work in urban planning/ architecture field i guess recognition by PCATP has a limited value. The overseas employer would prefer your skills and knowledge rather than your affiliation with PACATP as they are not bound to accept graduates form PCATP accredited institutions.
For example, for RTPI, Royal Town Planning Institute of the UK, being accredited with PCATP or not being accredited with PCATP is the SAME.
