The overall objective is to familiarize students with typographic concepts, principles and policies. In addition, students learn to create documents (thesis, dissertations, articles, books, beamers, etc.) in which the information is presented clearly and understandably and clearly arranged. The practical goal is to teach students how to use the typographic system LaTeX to create thesis and other works.
