Johny Srouji — Apple's senior VP of Hardware Technologies — will give a speech at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon on Monday, Sept. 18, the university's Computer Science school has announced.

The event will run from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. at the Rashid Auditorium. People wanting to attend are encouraged to RSVP via Apple's website, where they can also submit a question for Srouji. A reception will be held following the talk.

Neither Apple nor Carnegie Mellon have identified a topic, but Srouji has been with the company since 2008 when he joined to lead development on the A4, Apple's first self-designed processor. Since then he has overseen a number of components in Apple devices.

The executive will presumably touch on recent Apple announcements — such as the iPhone 8, iPhone X, and Face ID — and more specifically their underlying technologies, such as the A11 Bionic processor and the TrueDepth camera. He might also be called on to address the company's long-term interests, such as augmented reality and self-driving cars.

Apple has put a number of its executives out in the public sphere in advance of new iPhones, including CEO Tim Cook.
