Familiarise yourself with the most important features of LaTeX

LaTeX is a high-quality document preparation system and it is available as a free software. It is commonly used for writing, editing and designing scientific documents, technical reports, PhD thesis and books of broad audience. It is very efficient in terms of managing references to multiple sections, figures, tables and equations and for that reason, it has been widely used in science and education.

GEO University aims to offer a series of LaTeX courses, which will include step-by-step tutorials.

This is the first course on LaTex and it will equip you with the appropriate skills to efficiently write reports on LaTeX with images, contents, tables and more.  You may download the pdf file that we will create together step-by-step during this course. Enroll to the trial and download the pdf file!

Upon completion of the course, you will be able to download the source code of the document created.

Gain the appropriate knowledge to efficiently and effectively write documents

About your Instructor

Dr Milto Miltiadou is a researcher of the Laboratory of Remote Sensing and Geo-Environment, Eratorshenes Research Centre, which is based at Cyprus University of Technology. She studied her doctor of Engineering (EngD) at University of Bath, United Kingdom, with full studentship awarded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and specialised on efficient accumulation, analysis and visualisation of full-waveform (FW) LiDAR data in a volumetric representation with applications to forestry. During her EngD, she gained experience in both academia and industrial innovation through her placements at Airborne Research Facility of Plymouth Marine Laboratory, United Kingdom and Interpine Group Ltd, New Zealand. She further presented her research at many well-established international and national conferences and she was invited to give lectures about full-waveform LiDAR data at the National Institute of Space Research (INPE), Brazil, the National Technological University of Athens, Greece and the University of Bari, Italy. It further worth mentioning that, from an early age, she showed exceptional performance and has been acknowledged with multiple awards in mathematics, physics and arts. Additionally, during her studies and work, she gained significant professional and life skills through extra-curricular activities, which include organising writing retreats and collecting feedback for improving student experience as the student representative.
