Job Pool Architects in Pakistan?

Do you want to pursue a career in Architecture but worried about the market and job opportunities? Or maybe you have already started your degree and someone just told you your future in the field does not look bright.

Whatever it is that has got you worried, we have you covered.

We are listing some of the main jobs available for Architects in Pakistan below. There are three main categories of work in any industry. There are private jobs, public jobs, and business opportunities. We will cover all three in this piece. So if you are getting an Architecture degree or planning to enroll in a program, here is some information about the job pool in Pakistan.


This is one thing every student is most curious about and it is a justified concern.

Salary for beginner level jobs in this field is

Rs. 30,000.

Of course, anomalies are present and it is possible to find a job as a beginner that pays more or less than this. However, this is the average salary for a private or public beginner level job.

Let us now move on to the types of jobs available for Architects in Pakistan.

Private Jobs for Architects

The types of jobs available for those with a 5 years Architecture degree are:

  • Computer Aided Design (CAD) Technician
  • Architectural Draftsman
  • Project Manager
  • Urban Designer
  • Construction Manager
  • Estate Manager
  • Spatial Designer
  • Commercial Residential Surveyor
  • Building Surveyors
  • Landscape Architect
  • Planning Surveyor
  • Academic

It depends on your strengths and skill set what sub-field you want to pursue. There is not a lack of option though, that’s for sure.

As you grow in your field your take home salary and income will go on increasing too.

These are options in the private sector. What about the public or government sector though. There are many who like the stability a government job offers. Well, you have options too.

Public Jobs for Architects

Architects are needed in the government sector too for development projects. This means that there is room for CAD technicians and project supervisors and planners in most authorities.

Business Opportunities

The main business opportunity for people belonging to this field is to start their private practice.

One can open a consultation firm and work with contractors to take on projects privately. The one requirement you need to fulfill in order to do this is to acquire license or registration from the Pakistan Council of Architect and Town Planners (PCATP).

Architecture is a professional field of work. This is why the undergraduate degree program is 5 years long too unlike most other undergraduate programs that span a course of 4 years only.

Therefore, it is crucial to have a professional license in order to be able to practice privately.

In conclusion

There is no single formula or even degree that can ensure a successful professional career for an individual. At the end of the day, everyone’s experiences and strengths are different.

The chances of you making it in the field of architecture are just as high as you want them to be.

There are all kinds of opportunities available. You just need to have the initiative and drive to take them and make the most of them.
