Haha. From all the strange requirements put on university theses (and other "formatted documents") I have seen in my life, this is by far the strangest :-)) Instructions for font size, line spacing, margins, page layout etc can usually be justified, but being instructed to use a particular font from a particular vendor sounds a bit like micro-management to me. I am just wondering: what happens if you include a graph made for instance with Matlab, which uses a non-allowed font for the axes labels etc?


PS yes, I understand that there must be some rules on the font type, to prevent people from submitting scientific work in Comic Sans Serif - although I have seen that happen at a well-known national research institute in a respectable European country.
