Students and research scholars put enormous amount of effort and time into undertaking their project or research work. The task of writing their thesis or dissertation is equally difficult. Moreover, these thesis or dissertations are accessed and referred to by future students, scholars and researchers. Taking these factors into account, the university has adopted uniform specifications to enhance legibility as well as to make the exercise of report writing a painless one.
The Faculty of Engineering and Technology has come up with a LaTeX template that is useful to write a dissertation / thesis / report (or synopsis) in a format suitable for submission at SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University). The LaTeX class file provides options to format PhD, M.Tech. and B.Tech. project thesis. This template will save time in the long run for the students as well as the faculty members and officials, as the thesis, when prepared using LaTeX template, will automatically satisfy the specifications set forth by SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University). There is no need for the department or a committee to check whether the dissertation / thesis / report conforms to the specification.
Kindly be advised that the thesis will not be accepted by the departments of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology unless and until the student follows the LaTeX template provided here.
Before preparing the final form of the dissertation / thesis / report, the students are advised to familiarize themselves with the features of the template by accessing the below given files:
|LaTeX Instruction Manual||Readme File||Thesis Format|
The students may contact their department project coordinator or the head of the department (HoD) or the University DTP staff for assistance, if any of the given instructions are unclear or confusing; or if there are any questions related to the preparation of the dissertation / thesis / report.
Best wishes for a trouble-free experience in the preparation of the project.
