Along with him, other new members will be inducted on Sunday, October 6, 2019, in Washington DC, with the National Academy of Engineering (NAB) class of 2019.

The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) is a private, independent, non-profit institution that provides engineering leadership in service to USA.

It is designed to advance the well-being of the nation by promoting a vibrant engineering profession, and by marshalling the expertise and insights of eminent engineers, to provide independent advice to the federal government on matters involving engineering and technology.

This honour adds to the numerous honours he has received around the globe over the years.

He was the first Ghanaian to be knighted in the 21st century, and was therefore presented with an honorary knighthood by the Prince of Wales, in recognition of his achievements as an African businessman.

He also received an honorary Doctor of Science (D.Sc) degree jointly awarded him by the Camborne School of Mines and the University of Exeter (UK) in 1996.
