Hi Ahmed!

When a thesis is printed doublesided, that is, in two-side mode, when both sides of a page get printed, we have left and right hand pages like in books. Chapters commonly start at right hand pages. So, if needed, empty pages are inserted so chapter start at a right hand side.

To avoid this, you can uncomment a line in the main tex file of the template. Look at the \documentclass line, uncomment the oneside option or add oneside.

What Stefan meant to write is: Use oneside or openany.

Plaese also have a look at the quick guide, specifically this.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Thanks, Johannes! Indeed, openany is the option that you need if you still want to keep two-sided printing. Though I would find it strange, very uncommon, if a chapter starts on a left side, so I implicitly assumed you want to get rid of empty pages with single-sided result. A difference between two-sided is regarding the margins, two-sided has inner and outer margins (outers should be bigger) while single-sided has left and right margins, usually of the same size.
