# Placing text between two figures

I am just starting in LaTex and I am trying to create a custom titlepage. In our laboratory reports we are asked to have something similar to the image attached. I am having problems aligning the text between the two figures. How can I align it like in the image?

Since I am making the title page from scratch I have two .tex documents like so:

File test_title.tex

\documentclass[pdftex,12pt,letterpaper]{report}

\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}

\newcommand{\HRule}{\rule{\linewidth}{0.5mm}}

\begin{document}

\input{./title.tex}
\end{document}


File title.tex

\begin{titlepage}

\begin{flushleft}
\includegraphics[width=0.15\textwidth]{./UPRMlogo}
\end{flushleft}

\begin{flushright}
\includegraphics[width=0.15\textwidth]{./UPRMlogo}
\end{flushright}

\begin{center}
University of Puerto Rico \\
Mayaguez Campus\\
Mechanical Engineering Department\\
\end{center}

\end{titlepage}


Here is one way, but there are many options. Note the use of % characters to prevent spurious spaces from causing overfull \hbox warnings.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}
\noindent% just to prevent indentation narrowing the line width for this line
\includegraphics[width=0.15\textwidth]{example-image-a}%
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.7\textwidth}
\centering
University of Puerto Rico \\
Mayaguez Campus\\
Mechanical Engineering Department
\end{minipage}%
\includegraphics[width=0.15\textwidth]{example-image-b}
\end{document}


• Side note: If you know Dr. Papadopoulos (at UPRM), say hello to him from me. :-) Feb 15, 2015 at 21:05
• That worked wonders! Oh, small world. I haven't taken class with him but I do know him. When I see him around, I'll make sure to let him know! He gives statics and dynamics classes, I took those over 2 years ago, time flies. Feb 15, 2015 at 21:19
• I don't have enough reputation yet to upvote but will make sure to do so once I get to that point. Thanks! Feb 15, 2015 at 21:28
• @user3761290 small world indeed! We worked on this together a few years ago, brought together by a mutual colleague. And you're welcome, glad I could help out. Feel free to leave a comment here if there's anything I can change or explain further. Feb 15, 2015 at 21:35
• That's pretty cool! I do know there is a big debate regarding that class here on campus. Apparently some professors don't apply the topic to engineering and some students think it's wasting their time. So I am trying to get the table to be next to the names text but I keep getting some errors including that hbox. I looked up some info on the minipage but can't get it to work properly. I am editing my post to include the new information. Thank you in advance! Feb 15, 2015 at 22:43
