Software system for typesetting documents. Very good for technical documents containing lots of mathematics. LaTeX is free and is available for a wide range of computers and operating systems. LaTeX is linked on our website Significantly reduces potential errors Most LaTeX electronic thesis submissions are quickly accepted The Graduate School LaTeX Advancing to a Higher Degree Be careful: LaTeX isnt totally error-proof Keep these in mind: Please switch your Appendix section so it always FOLLOWS your

reference section The appendix and references sometimes get switched to the wrong locations in the current LaTeX template Please capitalize your chapter headings This helps the document meet Purdue style guidelines Eliminate blank pages whenever possible (especially after your abstract or in between individual appendices) LaTeX sometimes incorrectly treats individual appendices as chapters instead! Watch little things like dates, degrees, names, etc. These can still be stated erroneously Make sure you know the actual title of the degree youre receiving as well as your actual graduation date For example, an ECE masters candidate could be awarded a M.S., a M.S.E., or a M.S.E.C.E. depending on how he or she came up the chain
