Der Oscar für Wissenschaft und Entwicklung (Academy Scientific & Engineering Award) ist eine seit 1931 vergebenene Auszeichnung der Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences und würdigt herausragende Leistungen auf dem Gebiet der Weiterentwicklung der Filmindustrie.

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