WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Another notable name is visiting Purdue as part of the university's "Giant Leaps" sesquicentennial campaign. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will speak on campus on Wednesday April 17.

Wozniak is considered a pioneer of the personal computer revolution. He and co-founder Steve Jobs founded Apple in 1976. The talk is part of Purdue's Ideas Festival which is a series that brings world-renown speakers to campus.

He will join Purdue Engineering Dean Mung Chiang to discuss the Apple's founding and his vision for the future of technology. 

“Purdue Engineering is excited to welcome Steve Wozniak,” Chiang said. “We can’t wait to have a conversation with the Apple co-founder who engineered the computer revolution on the future of computing. From AI to autonomy, and from privacy to education, our campus and neighbors will hear what the legendary Woz thinks about these critical topics.”

Wozniak joins the list of notable names to visit campus this school year. Capt. Sully Sullenberger, U.S. Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue, 'Chopped' host Ted Allen, former first lady Laura Bush and many others have visited as part of the 150th anniversary celebration.

The conversation is from 6-7 p.m. in Loeb Playhouse inside Stewart Center. It is free and open to the public, but you must have a ticket. You can request one here
