# Change the cover page in classic thesis

I am using the classic thesis template and I would like to include the names of my supervisors on the left end of the cove page but nothing seems to work. I hope that someone can help with that, for my preamble I use the following:

      % book example for classicthesis.sty
\documentclass[
% Replace twoside with oneside if you are printing your thesis on a single side
% of the paper, or for viewing on screen.
%oneside,
oneside,
11pt, a4paper,
footinclude=true,
cleardoublepage=empty
]{scrbook}

\setlength{\parindent}{4em}

%\usepackage{scrlfile}
%\usepackage[pdfspacing,eulerchapternumbers]{classicthesis}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\title{Design of Support Tools}
\author{by\\
name}
\date{2014}
\titlehead{A Thesis submitted for the degree}

\setlength{\parindent}{4em}
\begin{document}

For my thesis I built my own title page in a seperate file named 'title.tex' because that way it is much more flexible than using the standard title page.

here a quick example how I designed my titlepage including your title:

\begin{titlepage}

\begin{center}
\textsc{\LARGE A Thesis submitted for the degree}\\[1,5cm]

\textsc{\LARGE Design of Support Tools}\\[1,5cm]
\endgroup

by\\[0,5cm]
name\\[2,5cm]

\end{center}

\vfill

\end{titlepage}


and in the main document include the titlepage with \input{./title.tex}

eg:

\begin{document}
\selectlanguage{ngerman}
%titlepage
\input{./title.tex}

...
\end{document}

• good idea, thanks a lot! I had really stuck with this issue – Stathis Oct 19 '14 at 14:43
• Little hint, line spacing is done after the paragraph is finished. I think you will prefer \textsc{\LARGE Design of Support Tools\par} as this is the recommended way. – Johannes_B Oct 22 '14 at 16:05
