The syllabus for Bachelor’s degree in City & Regional Planning (CRP) was first prepared in  1992 when the department of City & Regional Planning (CRP) was established in Mehran University of Engineering and Technology  (MUET) Jamshoro. In pursuance of the directives of National Curriculum Revision Committee (NCRC) of Higher Education Commission (HEC) and the recommendations of Pakistan Council of Architects and Town Planners (PCATP), the Board of Studies recommended changes in the entire syllabus to the Academic Council of the University  through the Board of Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering for approval. The amended syllabus was approved by the Academic Council in its 86th Meeting held on 17th December 2015 vide Resolution 86.5(a). The new up-dated syllabus is effective from 13-Batch.

 

The main features of revised syllabus are:
