##The Title Page A much better way to do this is to use the title page environment. We’ll do this in a separate tex file and then input it. The first thing we’ll do is enclose everything in the title page in the ‘center’ environment so it’s all aligned to the centre. Next we need to instruct LaTeX to leave a gap between the top of the page and the first line of text. To do this we use the \vspace command followed by a length. We also need to add an asterisk into the command to make sure LaTeX doesn’t decide to ignore the command. Next we’ll add the thesis title in bold font using the \textbf command. To leave a gap between this and the next line of text we use the \vspace command again, this time without the asterisk. Now we’ll add in a subtitle followed by some more vertical space and then the author name in bold font. This concludes what we want at the top of the title page. The rest of the content we’ll add at the bottom of the title page. To separate these two sections out we’ll use the \vfill command which will automatically add in the amount of vertical space needed for the content to fill the page. Next we’ll add in a line of text to specify what degree the thesis is being submitted for. The double backslash is used to create a new line. We’ll then add more space before adding in the university logo specifying it’s width as a fraction of the text width. Finally we’ll add in some information about the university and the date.
In the Philippines, an academic thesis is named by the degree, such as bachelor/undergraduate thesis or masteral thesis. However, in Philippine English , the term doctorate is typically replaced with doctoral (as in the case of "doctoral dissertation"), though in official documentation the former is still used. The terms thesis and dissertation are commonly used interchangeably in everyday language yet it generally understood that a thesis refers to bachelor/undergraduate and master academic work while a dissertation is named for doctorate work.
