B.Sc in CRP has its charm; it is more useful to be graduate of CRP rather than B.Sc in general science or with a plain BA. Job is relatively easier with CRP degree, although its graduate may end up as Assistant Planners, or back-stage full planners until their universities will be successful in turning the tides and winning PCATP approval. Anyway, the students can work overseas as well. and hopefully they will not suffer such huge set back as in Pakistan.
I also wish to point out that whether it will be useful at all for PCATP to limit its accreditation?
Quality of education will be a concern but PCATP will have to work much more harder than ever before to ensure quality of education and at the same time, not being culprit of sidelining new universities and denying new students to learn urban planning in the country. Private universities are teaching Engineering programs anyway. Why not let more universities teach architecture and urban planning?
It now seems a possibility that some programs succeed in getting PCATP accreditation because of influential bosses and experts in the universities that start unaccredited programs.
