Meet Austin R.

Meet Austin R.

Austin completed the Accelerated Development Program for Engineering and now works as a Mechanical Engineer for the company. He recommends the program for anyone who wants to work for an innovative company: “My favorite part of Allegion is the emphasis that is placed on innovation, and I have enjoyed seeing the environment become more innovative every day.” 

Austin also credits the program for offering a lot of exposure opportunities to those involved. “The program doesn’t just focus on engineering. It offers a lot of exposure to Allegion and what is going on outside of the engineering department, which I really helped me become exposed to the overall business.” 

Meet Jaime S.


Jaime is a current Allegion employee who completed the Accelerated Development Program for Engineering. Currently working as a mechanical engineer, Jaime has attributed many of his career opportunities to this program. “This program has given me plenty of opportunities for additional training and product involvement that might not have been possible if I was hired in for a standard engineering entry-level job. I got to really experience New Product Development and innovation projects, and getting that experience right away is really important for our careers long term.”

Allegion understands that being innovative and transformative is important to engineers, which is why the ADP program has a specific section dedicated to innovation where the participants focus full time on one or more innovation projects. The tasks are meaningful, and many participants have their direct hand in ongoing company-wide projects. “It’s a really rewarding opportunity that you won't see set up in some other companies.”
