I have decided to write my thesis with LaTex. There is a specific format for the first three pages of the report which are prescribed by the University. Since I am new to LaTex, I am finding it difficult to create them.

Can anyone help me out with this? Would be really helpful.Thanks.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX. Please have a look at en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Scientific_Reports. You should also read an introduction. You can also have a look at Customizing titlepage. – Johannes_B Jan 7 at 9:26
  • You should complain to the university. I have never seen something as ugly as this stuff. – Johannes_B Jan 7 at 9:27
  • Why don't you just fill out the blanks in Word and print it? I don't see a need to recreate this in any way. – Johannes_B Jan 7 at 9:28
  • Something you need: the font (that's maybe Helvetica, I think), the margin setting by geometry package, something to add a line from the left edge of the page to the right edge, and maybe some tables... – user156344 Jan 7 at 9:33
  • @JouleV I doubt the dotted lines are needed in print if the document is filled out electronically. People need it when they fill out the paper with a pen. – Johannes_B Jan 7 at 9:41

Instead of trying to convert these (extremely ugly) pages to LaTeX I would suggest the following:

  1. Use Word to fill them out (or whatever other tool they are provided for)
  2. Export as PDF (or use a print-to-pdf driver if the tool does not support exporting as PDF)
  3. Use the pdfpages package to include those pages at the beginning of your LaTeX document
  4. Build with pdflatex or lualatex


% select paper type to match your pdf, I am assuming A4 as h_da is in Germany
% include the pdfpages package
    % use \includepdf at the beginning of your document.
    % pages=- causes all pages to be included.
    % the filename must not contain spaces.
