Der Oscar für technische Verdienste (Academy Technical Achievement Award) ist eine seit 1931 vergebenene Auszeichnung der Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences und würdigt herausragende Leistungen auf dem Gebiet der Verbesserung technischer Geräte und Methoden in der Filmwirtschaft.

Bei dem Preis handelt es sich um eine sogenannte Class III-Auszeichnung, da die Preisträger keine Oscar-Statuette (Class I) oder Oscar-Plakette (Class II) erhalten, sondern ein Oscar-Zertifikat. Zum Teil wurden in einem Jahr mehrere Preise in dieser Kategorie vergeben.
