# Templates or tutorials for creating a title page

I am relatively new to Latex. I am writing my thesis in Latex, which has been (as you know) so much more convenient than a word processor. I am using \documentclass[oneside,11pt]{book} along with the libertine and libertinust1math packages.

But, my department has provided me with a title page template in a Word file (screenshot below), and they say I must follow the template exactly.

How do I go about creating a title page in Latex? Can you please recommend some Latex templates or tutorials that might help me think about how to reproduce the above snapshot from Word?

While I haven't the real PDF template to compare, I tried to replicate the template as similar as I can.

My code is here (perhaps not forever), and follows as well:

\documentclass[oneside,11pt]{book}

\usepackage[pass]{geometry}
\usepackage{lipsum}           % Just for example
\usepackage{libertine}
\usepackage{libertinust1math}

\title{Thesis Title: Subtitle}
\author{Firstname M Lastname}
\date{December, 2020}

\makeatletter
\newcommand{\printcover}{%
\begin{titlepage}
\begin{center}
\normalsize
\vspace{\stretch{1}}

{\bfseries \@title}

\end{titlepage}
}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\frontmatter % Remove numbering from frontmatter
\printcover  % We've defined above

% some stuffs

\mainmatter % Start numbering

\chapter{Introduction}
\lipsum[1-50] % Just for example
\end{document}
