Aalto Thesis LaTeX Template
The template and its accompanying style file were originally written for the TKK Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Automation thesis writers, but later—after Aalto University began its operation—the style file and template were extended in a fashion that makes it possible for all Aalto thesis writers to use the template.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page for a detailed listing of the files and the utility to easily download all files.
- You will also need the Aalto logo package. Note that this package contains old logos of BIZ (nee ECON) and ARTS. Should you need BIZ or ARTS logos you are on your own at the moment.
- The default format is now pdf/a-2b, and pdf/a-1b is supported too (you can still produce HQ prints by using the dvips option).
- The thesis text is in Finnish and in an incomplete version in English. The complete English version is in preparation. However, the template is heavily commented in English, so it should be easy to use this template in theses written in English.
- The compiled thesis template (opinnaytepohja.pdf in Finnish) can be used as a stand-alone guide for all thesis writers no matter what typesetting software they are using. It should be noted that the typographical conventions used in the text are Finnish ones hence you will need to consult e.g. Chicago Manual of Style or such like when writing in English.
- This template is not intended for doctoral dissertations as these are usually printed in the Aalto publication series. There is a different LaTeX template for doctoral theses.
- School of Electrical Engineering thesis writers are encouraged to use the IEEE Citation Style when writing in English. Adapt the \thebibliography part to achieve this (see the comment by Ingrid Castrejon Suarez del Real posted on 19.4.2021) and learn to pay attention to the details that go in writing a list of references or bibliography.
