# Recreating this starting page in a book environment

I am starting to write my thesis, and I am trying to reproduce this starting page in the book document. However I am struggling on putting the image is the same part of the page. Any ideas? Should I use the memoir document instead?

This is what I tried so far:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,oneside]{book}

\usepackage{graphics}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\title{Thesis title}

\author{Name}

\date{July 2019}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\clearpage

\chapter*{Abstract}

My abstract

\end{document}


However I get an error with \titlehead saying it is undefined.

• Welcome to TeX - LaTeX! Can you show us what you have tried so far? – Andrew Swann Oct 22 '18 at 8:04
• Yes, sorry about that! I will edit in a minute. – qcc101 Oct 22 '18 at 8:11

• \titlehead is from the scrbook class. Note, usually you only load the graphicx package or the graphics package, not both; graphicx is the enhanced version. – Andrew Swann Oct 22 '18 at 9:52

The layout from \maketitle is pretty much fixed. For anything else you usually have to specify your own layout. The memoir manual (> texdoc memoir) Chapter 4 Titles describes some tools to help in this. Chapter 21 An example thesis design shows the code for a particular Thesis Title and Approval pages. However, something along the following lines (less any typos) and adding in appropriate vertical spaces should help.

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\pagestyle{empty}
%%% The Title page
% vertical space
\begin{center}
Something crossed out
\end{center}
\begin{center}
Crossed out graphic % \includegraphics...
\end{center}
% vertical space
\begin{center}
\textsc{Master of ...} \\[2\baselineskip]
\textsc{\LARGE Master Degree Thesis}
\end{center}
% vertical space
\begin{center}
More stuff
\end{center}
% vertical space
\noindent Supervisor: \hfill Candidate: \\
Name \hfill Name
% vertical space

{\centering Date \par}
\clearpage
% and following pages
\end{document}
