Recognizing his entrepreneurial inclination at an early age, Venkatesh Bangera opted to pursue a Diploma in Civil Engineering (DCE) for fulfilling his aspiration of constructing buildings. However, after the completion of DCE, Bangera realized that only a diploma will not help him, he needs to study the subject extensively to gain high-level advanced knowledge. With thorough contemplation and research, he chose to obtain a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from Alva's Institute of Engineering and Technology (AIET). This move turned out to be the best decision of life for Bangera who graduated in the year 2013 from the institute.

Soon after coming out from AIET, Bangera along with his father established a construction company viz. Sri Siddhi RNB Developers. Today a successful entrepreneur, Bangera credits his success to all the faculty members and the HoD of the Civil Engineering Department of AIET. "All the members of the department are highly co-operative, moving forward with a common goal of producing capable civil engineers. I am still in regular contact with my HoD," says Bangera. There are several such stories alike Bangera, which have got accomplished in the campus of AIET.
