I know that this is easy, but I can't figure out how to make it work with a 3 or 4 -line subject title. Any suggestion?

The template of the project I am working on is here.

EDIT: In additiona, how could I add the following two lines (and the appropriate space) just below my my name:

Supervised by

where, , preferably, should be in the form of link, exactly as my name.

EDIT 2: I added the following after line 222 in ".cls" file:

{{\supervisiontext} \par}
{\it {\@supervisor} \par}

And the following in "thesis.tex" file:

\renewcommand{\supervisiontext}{supervised by}
    \supervisor{\href{mailto:xxx@xxx.xx}{xxx xxx}}
    \supervisor{xxx xxx}

But, unfortunately, it stills not working.

In both cases, I think you need to adjust the definition of \maketitle provided by CUEDthesisPSnPDF.cls. If you reduce the arguments to the \vspace commands you can create space for additional material on the first page. You can also see how your name is typeset and insert the name of your supervisor in the same way. However, note that many universities have very strict rules about the layout of PhD theses; you should check that you are not breaking any before you edit the class file.

Don't edit the original class file, make a copy with a new name like myclass.cls and change this one. – Kurt Aug 20 '12 at 13:03
@Ian Please see EDIT 2 in my original post. Thank you. – eualin Aug 20 '12 at 13:29
@eualin --- You need to define \@supervisor and \supervisor. There are similar definitions on lines 184--192 of the class file. I think you just need to add \def\supervisor#1{\gdef\@supervisor{#1}}. – Ian Thompson Aug 20 '12 at 13:36
Perfect! It works. Thanks! – eualin Aug 20 '12 at 14:29
