Jacob McCullum, an aerospace engineering honors student, was selected for the Department of Defense (DOD) Science, Mathematics and Research for Transformation (SMART) scholarship. The DOD SMART scholarship is a service program that offers college students the opportunity to receive a full scholarship and be employed by DOD after completing their degrees.

Advised by Minta Martin Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Chair Norman Wereley, McCullum is conducting structural health monitoring (SHM) research in the Composites Research Laboratory. His research involves the use of piezoelectric sensors/actuators and explores the application of the guided wave method of SHM applied to an F/A-18C wing section. The overall goals of the research are improved safety and maintenance practices in the aerospace industry through more reliable data collection of an aircraft's structural condition.

A member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, McCullum is also pursuing a private pilot’s license in his spare time.
