PhD thesis LaTeX style for TU Eindhoven

with 5 comments

Hi all,

Writing a thesis, being it a Master or PhD one, works best using LaTeX (unless you like fixing layout and referencing issues in M$ Word).
However, finding or creating a good style is sometimes difficult. And often you just want to use one you just saw. Well, apparently some of you like the style I used for my Masters PhD thesis. So, I want to share this with all of you.

In my opinion it is a good clean style for any dissertation, although this one has a titlepage specifically for TU/e (Eindhoven University of Technology) use, but is easily adaptable to any institution.

Please find below the LaTeX files needed to jump-start your own dissertation in LaTeX (you will start with 52 pages without having typed a single word!).

If you use this style, please let us know this in the comments. And when you’re done, be sure to share a link with us so we can be proud with you!

Also, if you have applied any improvements, please share them too, so others can benefit.

But most of all: have fun writing!!!

You are free to use and adjust this style without referencing (although it would be nice of course ūüėČ ).However, this also means that we can not provide any support to customize the style to your needs or help you solve any LaTeX issues (there are many, many resources for that to be found online).

  1. A tip by Sander Leemans, who found out that for newer versions of the glossaries package, the mfirstuc package also needs to be loaded:

    So in config.tex:

    \usepackage[xindy,toc]{glossaries} % sorted glossary entries

  3. We found that index is generated with errors “Missing number, treated as zero. \end{theindex}”.
    To solve this, the package “prelim2e” should not be included.

  4. Hello Joos, thank you for your Latex template!

    I was wondering why you created an empty page by placing an empty image on it. For some reason, this empty image was creating big problems for printing. I replaced it with \mbox{} to fix the issue.

    • Hi Sandra, I’m not sure anymore, but thanks for letting me/us know how to fix this! I hope your thesis is coming along nicely. Cheers, Joos
