    Eco tourism is also another important industry. Forests, natural areas provide ample scope for linking tourism industry in this service. People from all walks of life need to be educated to promote nature conservation.

    Hi,

    I’m computing and networking engineering background. Now is working as bank system programmer in SilverLake. I’ve set up my mind to become a green collar worker and involve in Green Job.
    It seems like hard for me to direct join to the related field, hence I was thinking to get a Master in GBI/Environmental engineering related course.
    My degree is Second Upper division in CnE course award by sheffield hallam nottingham University.

    P/S: looking for related scholarship/sponsor/subsidy for the master course.

    Will be appreciate and grateful for any reply.

    Thanks.
