Pièce de Résistance: Master Thesis Template

I would now like to present my pièce de résistance, my gift to you: a LaTeX-template, including a BiBTeX-database with all the examples discussed in my previous blogposts. You can find all the code in either (ironically) a .docx-file, or a PDF. You will also need the figures attached at the end of this blogpost.

The bones of the front page come from the Faculty of Science template, which I adapted by replacing some colors and text. The document is well structured and the comments explain what each block of code does. This means you can adapt page settings, additional cover settings, and so on. Before you get started, add the title and subtitle, your name, (co)supervisor, master and academic year.

Before the table of contents, the template starts with acknowledgements and an abstract. You can add the copyright-page by removing the % sign in front of \input{docs/copyright}. Furthermore, the table of contents precedes a list of tables and figures, which are all numbered in roman style (i, ii, iii). The page numbering switches to arabic numbers from the introduction on. The master file then starts including five exemplary chapters, as well as the bibliography in the plainnat style as explained in BiBTeX – your new best friend.

Here is everything you need:

  1. It’s simply great that you are offering this for free to everyone, thank you so much for that. The work you put into it won’t have to be done again by anyone else, if they find this blogpost ofcourse. You’re a sharing hero! Now I’ll simply have to start learning to use LaTeX…
