The Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards are awarded to a living individual, a company, or a scientific or technical organization for developments and/or standardization involved in engineering technologies that either represent so extensive an improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature that they materially have affected    television.

A Committee of highly qualified engineers working in television considers technical developments in the industry and determines which, if any, merit an award.
