# How to vertically align title in LaTex

I'm finishing my master's thesis and would like to move the title vertically more down towards center of the page...I googled, but couldn't get it to work =/

Here is a portion of my code from the beginning, which creates the title page:

\begin{document}
%\layout
\title{My title}
\author{My name}

\maketitle
\thispagestyle{empty}

\vfill
\begin{flushright}
My name
My Faculty
2013
etc
\end{flushright}

\newpage
.
.
.


Now with this code my title goes to the very top of the first page...how to modify the code so that I can move it around vertically? I also tried to put \vspace above the \maketitle, but the title remained where it was...:S

\vspace* doesn't seem to like being put before a title. A work around is to add vertical space to the \title

\documentclass[notitlepage]{article}
\begin{document}

\title{\vspace{30mm}My title}
\author{My name}
\maketitle
\thispagestyle{empty}

\begin{flushright}
My name\\
My Faculty\\
2013\\
etc
\end{flushright}

\newpage
\end{document}


This would lower your entire title section by 30mm.
