In 2007, Owias got a Bachelorof Textile Engineering, NED University of Engineering & Technology, Pakistan. From January 2008 he was a lecturer in the Department of Textile Engineering, NED University.  In 2011 he got a master from the same university.







His PhD in the School of Textiles and Designs is to develop models for the thermal comfort properties of textile material by considering different parameters. The Complex structures of textile are analysed by using experimental and numerical approaches. For that purpose different textile substrates are examined for thermal comfort properties by using multi-level of factors and validate these results with numerical approach. A number of calculations will be performed for partial differential equations to develop strong correlation between the parametric factors and the thermal comfort properties. In parallel to modelling of thermal comfort properties of textile materials, an experimental device is being developed to be used to carry out testing the thermal properties of textile materials. The tested results would be used for validation by using numerical approach.
