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






File title.tex

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


\noindent% just to prevent indentation narrowing the line width for this line

    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
