Brendon Cintas (Mechanical Engineering)

Brendon Cintas is an undergraduate student and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Fellow pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Florida International University. In 2019, Brendon was granted the privilege to participate on a project developing methods for real-time in-line monitoring of yield stress fluids during the transfer of high-level radioactive waste, a project for the DOE’s Savannah River National Laboratory to assist in the characterization of the toxic sludge within the site. During his time, Brendon was required to engage and apply real world solutions using the theoretical knowledge obtained throughout his studies and research analyses. He was also required to acquire new talents and skillsets that, as a result, equipped him with the necessary experience and knowledge that he intends on utilizing in his future endeavors of doctoral research in Experimental and Computational Fluid Mechanics.
