DESCRIPTION
===========

The Stellenbosch bundle consists of the following:

 usthesis.cls/usthesis.sty (usthesis.afr, usthesis.eng):

     The usthesis class/style files are provided to typeset reports,
     theses and dissertations that conform to the requirements of
     the Engineering Faculty of the University of Stellenbosch.
         The class file usthesis.cls is based on the standard LaTeX
     book class, while usthesis.sty is a style file to be loaded on
     top of the very powerful memoir class. Both options give
     identical output, but the benefit of the using memoir is that
     it has many additional command and environments for formatting
     and processing of a document.
         Usthesis is primarily concerned with the formatting of the
     front matter such as the title page, abstract, etc. It also
     works together with the babel package to provide language
     language options to typeset documents in Afrikaans or in
     English.

 usbib.sty (usmeg-a.bst, usmeg-n.bst, ussagus.bst)

     USbib is a LaTeX and BibTeX package for the formatting of
     bibliographic references of theses and dissertations of the
     Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of
     Stellenbosch. This package is tailored towards citations and
     bibliographical formatting for the natural sciences and
     engineering.

 ustitle.sty

     The ustitle package redefine the standard title page of the
     LaTeX classes to add a logo at the top and an address line
     below the author. It is intended for use when writing general
     notes and articles.

 usnomencl.sty

     A very simple utility to set a nomenclature or list of symbols
     for US theses and reports.

 ussummary.sty

     Summary page required for the final year projects of the
     Department of Mechanical Engineering.

 masters-sample.zip, report-sample.zip

stel­len­bosch – Stel­len­bosch the­sis bun­dle

The us­the­sis class/style files are pro­vided to type­set re­ports, the­ses and dis­ser­ta­tions that con­form to the re­quire­ments of the Engi­neer­ing Fac­ulty of the Univer­sity of Stel­len­bosch.

The class file us­the­sis.cls is based on the stan­dard LaTeX book class, while us­the­sis.sty is a style file to be loaded on top of the very pow­er­ful mem­oir class. Both op­tions give iden­ti­cal out­put, but the ben­e­fit of the us­ing mem­oir is that it has many ad­di­tional com­mand and en­vi­ron­ments for for­mat­ting and pro­cess­ing of a doc­u­ment.

Us­the­sis is pri­mar­ily con­cerned with the for­mat­ting of the front mat­ter such as the ti­tle page, ab­stract, etc. and a de­cent page lay­out on A4 pa­per. It also works to­gether with the ba­bel pack­age to pro­vide lan­guage op­tions to type­set doc­u­ments in Afrikaans or in English.

Ad­di­tional pack­ages are pro­vided for bib­li­o­graphic mat­ter, note ti­tle pages, lists of sym­bols, as well as var­i­ous graphic files for lo­gos.
