I am new to latex, and am miserably failing to do so. I tried the center the lines by using the command \center, but even that is not working. How should I go about creating said titlepage? Also, how do I embed an image in the title page?

• Possible duplicate question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/59460/… . You ca also visit this for more examples: zoonek.free.fr/LaTeX/LaTeX_samples_title/0.html . Also: sharelatex.com/templates/books – fajar Dec 6 '14 at 4:11
• Don't worry we've all been there. But if you are unfamiliar even with \begin{center} <text goes here> \end{center}, you might want to read the venerable The Not So Short Introduction to LaTeX2e, which has been translated into many different languages. – jon Dec 6 '14 at 4:12
• Welcome to TeX.SX! You should pretty easily be able to search this site for questions and answers about how to insert images. Have you thought about using a dedicated class/package/template for writing a thesis? See, for example, LaTeX Templates by ShareLaTeX or LaTeX Templates. – Adam Liter Dec 6 '14 at 4:13
• @AdamLiter- I know this is probably not in the spirit of this site, but I need to submit this report today, and I just cannot create the title page. Could you please help me with the code for this? It's perfectly alright should you choose not to. – fierydemon Dec 6 '14 at 4:26
• If you are really only stuck on the titlepage, how did you produce an entire thesis in LaTeX while now being new to it? If you really have a thesis to submit today and you really are new to LaTeX, now is not the time to learn it. Use whatever you've been using. Submit. If you want to learn LaTeX, do it afterwards. This is just not something which you can pick up and format something of this kind on that kind of time scale. – cfr Dec 6 '14 at 4:32

There are much better ways to do this, but if time is of the essence and you don't really care about most details...
