The thesis templates have been created to make it easy to prepare your thesis using LaTeX while adhering to the MIT Thesis Specifications. We make every effort to keep these up to date, but you should always consult the MIT Libraries Thesis Specifications before submitting your thesis. If you notice something in the Thesis Specifications that does not match the templates, please let us know by e-mailing us at thesis AT mit DOT edu.
The thesis templates are highly customizable, and there are many options and macros available for your use. Most of these are documented in the comments in each file, especially main.tex. You are encouraged to read through the comments.
You may download the thesis templates here: templates.zip.
