The goal of the EVE University Production Department is to build stuff for students to lose to gate guns.

Currently Active programs:
- Fleet Support Program: It aims to support content creation from FC's by providing doctrine fits of the FC's choice at staging stations of the FC's choice.
- UNI Fuel Production: If Ivy League structures need fuel, please get in contact with the Production Manager.
Joining the Production Department
The Production Department regularly recruits new members at various levels to ensure the smooth operation of the university logistical services. During recruitment drives, the department manager will post on the EVE University forums and/or send out a corporation-wide evemail with information regarding the open position(s) and directions on how to apply. There are no official clone state or skill point requirements for positions and only Freshmen title is required. As you might imagine, the Production Department necessarily has access to corporation assets and isk. With the proliferation of spies, saboteurs, thieves, and other nefarious creatures in EVE Online, the department must place a heavy emphasis on proven trustworthiness when reviewing applications. We are here solely to provide logistical support to unistas and to the corporation as a whole. Our department is open to current unistas only, from any campus.
During those times when the Production Department is not recruiting, players with a strong interest in industry who wish to support the production needs of EVE University are encouraged to contact the Production Manager to see if there are any momentary tasks that could use extra industrial character slots.
From time to time, Production Department personnel may request help from or offer services to the university-wide community using the ingame chat channels or the forums. Additionally, department members will gain access to the following EVE University services for communication:
- A dedicated slack channel on the Staff Slack, through the Production Manager (see UniSlacks for instructions on how to access EVE University slack channels).
- The Logistics and Staff Office subforum
- Various department specific spreadsheets
Requirements and Infos
We recognize that EVE University is first and foremost a place of learning, which is the reason we have basically no application requirement. With that in mind, some of the roles in the department can be done with next to no training and minimal skill points. Other industrial jobs require months or even years of dedicated training for both the character and the human player. The following pages provide some general information regarding the deep complexity of industry in EVE Online:
- Industry, gives basic information regarding industry and the ingame industry window.
- Manufacturing, explains how to build things.
- Research, provides instructions for improving blueprint originals in terms of time efficiency and material efficiency. Also describes the procedure for copying blueprint originals to produce blueprint copies, and why a person would want to do this.
- Invention, takes the reader on a trip down the rabbit hole that is advanced T2 module, drone, ammunition, and ship production.
- Hauling, explains how to safely and efficiently move stuff from A to B (without getting blown up at C).
The links provided above discuss some skill point investments that are relevant for specific tasks. Players are strongly encouraged to train skills that support the activities they enjoy doing in the game. While the department does not require any skill to join, the following skills can help you become a more efficient member of the department. The skills are grouped roughly by the Industry areas they relate to.
- Industry (1x) and Advanced Industry (3x) both reduces manufacturing time and are prerequisites for a great many production-related tasks ingame. Advanced Industry also reduces research time.
- Mass Production (2x) and Advanced Mass Production (8x) allow additional manufacturing job slots.
- Laboratory Operation (1x) and Advanced Laboratory Operation (8x) provide additional slots for science jobs.
- Reactions (1x) and Mass Reactions (2x) both reduce reaction time, while Mass Reactions also provides additional slots for reaction jobs.
- Science (1x) improves blueprint copying speed, and is a prerequisite for a great many production-related things.
- Research (1x) improves blueprint time efficiency research speed and is a prerequisite for building some rigs and T2 ships.
- Metallurgy (3x) improves blueprint material efficiency research speed and is a prerequisite for building some rigs and T2 ships.
- Remote Reactions (3x) Scientific Networking (3x) and Supply Chain Management (3x), are convenience skills that allow the start (and completion) of production from a distance.
- Jury Rigging (2x) allows construction of rigs and subsystems. Level III in this skill is required to open up all of the other rigging skills, which then allow construction of the relevant rigs.
- Cybernetics (3x) allows players to use increasingly powerful (and expensive) implants, some of which can improve production-related performance.
- Science Skills:
- Gallente Encryption Methods (5x) and their other racial counterparts are prerequisites for invention of racial T2 ships and items and higher levels give higher invention success rates.
- Gallente Starship Engineering (5x) and their other racial counterparts prerequisites for invention and manufacturing of racial T2 ships and higher invention success rates.
- Mechanical Engineering (5x) is a prerequisite for invention and manufacturing of all T2 ships and higher invention success rates.
- Advanced Industrial Ship Construction (3x) and the other Advanced Construction skill are prerequisites for manufacturing of T2 ships of the respective size.
- Electronic Engineering (5x) and Laser Physics (5x) and the other Physics and Engineering skills are prerequisite for invention and manufacturing of T2 (non-ship) items.
- Astronautic Engineering (5x) is a useless skill that does not serve any purpose in the game anymore, so it can be ignored.
- Skills that don't have priority for the Production Department:
- Drug Manufacturing (2x) required for the production of combat boosters. As of now the Production Department does need this skill.
- Sleeper Encryption Methods (4x) is a prerequisite for T3 Invention and higher levels give higher invention success rates.
- Sleeper Technology (5x) Takmahl Technology (5x) and the other 2 Technologies are prerequisites for storyline module manufacturing.
- Propulsion Subsystem Technology (5x) and the other Subsystem Technologies are prerequisite for T3 Invention and manufacturing and higher levels give higher invention success rates.
It should be noted that most of the above skills rely on attributes of Intelligence and Memory, for those students who are familiar with Neural Remaps.
