I have a long academic report to write and I am thinking of using the book class or the report class? However in both these classes the title page has the title in the centre. I want to make my own title page with a few images related to the report, the logo of my instititute etc.? How to do this?

This is the extreme abuse of features provided by LaTex. This should serve as a model and the length parameters can be changed as per personal needs.

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[tc]{titlepic}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[executivepaper,margin=1in]{geometry}
\definecolor{title}{RGB}{180,0,0}
\definecolor{other}{RGB}{171,0,255}
\definecolor{name}{RGB}{255,0,0}
\definecolor{phd}{RGB}{0,0,240}
\begin{document}
\title{\bfseries {\sc\textcolor{title}{The title of your report goes here and \\ this is the second line}}}
\author{\textcolor{other}{Thesis  submitted to} \\[5pt]
\emph{\textcolor{other}{Your University}}\\[2cm]
 \textcolor{other}{in partial fulfilment for the award of the degree

\textsc{\Large{\textcolor{phd}{Doctor of Philosophy}}} \\[5pt]
  \textcolor{other}{in some subject} \vspace{0.4cm} \\[1in]

   \vspace{2cm}

 \textcolor{other}{Address line -- 2}\\[5pt]
 \textcolor{other}{Address line -- 4,

 \vfill
 \textcolor{other}{April 2011}}}

\date{}

\maketitle
\end{document}

One can simply use titlepage as an alternative. Here we don't use \title and \author but everything is done manually.

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[executivepaper,margin=1in]{geometry}
\usepackage[charter]{mathdesign}
%-----------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{document}
% ----------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{titlepage}
\begin{center}
 {\huge\bfseries The title of your report goes here and \\ this is the second line\\}
 % ----------------------------------------------------------------
 \vspace{1.5cm}
 {\Large\bfseries Author -- 1}\\[5pt]
 email@gmail.com\\[14pt]
  % ----------------------------------------------------------------
 \vspace{2cm}
{Thesis  submitted to} \\[5pt]
\emph{{Your University}}\\[2cm]
{in partial fulfilment for the award of the degree
 of} \\[2cm]
\textsc{\Large{{Doctor of Philosophy}}} \\[5pt]
{in some subject} \vspace{0.4cm} \\[2cm]
% {By}\\[5pt] {\Large \sc {Me}}
 \vfill
 % ----------------------------------------------------------------
\includegraphics[width=0.19\textwidth]{example-image-a}\\[5pt]
{Department of Subject}\\[5pt]
{Address line -- 2}\\[5pt]
{Address line -- 4,
 INDIA}\\
 \vfill
{April 2011}
\end{center}
\end{titlepage}
% ----------------------------------------------------------------
\end{document}

The above answer summarizes it all. However, here is another simpler cover page, which one can easily comprehend-

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{report}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage[top=1.2in, bottom=1.2in]{geometry}

\begin{document}

\begin{titlepage}
\begin{center}

\begin{spacing}{1.5}
Internship Project Report\\
\vspace*{\fill}
\end{spacing}
\begin{spacing}{2.5}
\textbf{\huge The Title of Image Comes Here}\\[0.5cm]
\vspace*{\fill}
\textit{Submitted by}
\end{spacing}

\begin{spacing}{1.15}
\textbf{\large Your Name}

\textbf{\large Other Details}

\vspace*{\fill}

\textnormal{\large Department \\ Institute Name\\ Location\\ Date}

\end{spacing}
\end{center}
\end{titlepage}
\end{document}

    What's the difference between this and the second option of the accepted answer? As I see it, the last edit of the accepted answer dates back two years before this answer. – M.Herzkamp May 3 '16 at 8:04
