First of all, excuse my English. I'm trying to make a cover page, I have made it on Word, but in LateX is much harder to do. Is like this,

This is what I need

Same sized images at rigth and left of the text, textwidth size and centred text.

But this is what I can do on Latex. How can i make the text is centred in the cell?

Latex table

Here is the LateX Code:

 \begin{tabular}{| >{\centering\arraybackslash}m{2cm}| >   {\centering\arraybackslash}m{10cm}| >{\centering\arraybackslash}m{2cm}| }
 \includegraphics[width=2cm,height=2cm]{US_ETSI_Logo} & 
 \textbf{{\large Universidad de Sevilla. Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros}} &   \mbox{}     \includegraphics[width=2cm,height=2cm]{UniversidadSevilla_Logo}\\

maybe there is an easier solution to achieve what I want.

Please make your code compilable, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to help you. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. – Jubobs Jun 2 '13 at 12:08

I'm not sure I understand the question: the text is centred both horizontally and vertically. Do you mean that you want a line break after Sevilla.? In that case, the following will produce the desired output.

A few comments:

  • To effect a line break inside a cell, you cannot use \\ because tabular interprets it as a row terminator; however, you can---only in cells in paragraph mode, such as m, though---use \linebreak instead.
  • You likely do not need a float environment (table) here. You want this particular tabular to stay at a very specific location (on the title page, I presume), not "float" somewhere else in your document. Using \begin{table}{H} is considered bad practice, except in very special cases. Just remove the table environment.
  • You shouldn't specify both width and height of the images you import: if you don't get the ratio right, your images will appear distorted in your output document, which is not what you want here. Simply specify whichever is most important (probably height here), and leave the other one unspecified; the graphicx package will take care of the scaling for you.

  \begin{tabular}{  |>{\centering\arraybackslash}m{2cm}|%
    & \large \bfseries Universidad de Sevilla
      \linebreak Escuela T\'{e}cnica Superior de Ingenieros
    & \includegraphics[height=2cm]{UniversidadSevilla_Logo}\\

Lose the {} around the \large text or you get the wrong line spacing. – David Carlisle Jun 2 '13 at 12:55
