Kay Oliver is the academic advisor for all College of Computing graduate-level majors, as well as the undergraduate majors in the Applied Computing department (CNSA, EET, Cybersecurity, Mechatronics). Chances are good that you’ve met Kay. Here’s a bit of background about her education and career.
Oliver has an M.A. in educational technology from Michigan State University and a B.S. in physics from Western Michigan University with Michigan Tech coursework in Chemistry.
For more than 20 years she worked with the Department of Defense Education Activity, a government agency responsible for K-12 education of children of American citizens working internationally for the DoD and the US Military.
For most of that time she was responsible for the professional development of teachers with education technology. Now she continues her commitment to student success by working with students and professors to help our MTU students find their path through the College of Computing.
Oliver has had the privilege of living in Pisa, Italy, Bitburg, Germany; and PyeongTaek, South Korea, but she is pleased to return to her roots in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula where she enjoys sailing, kayaking, biking, and skiing.
