Abstract: Experiential Learning is a modern radical approach of conducting education. Kolb’s four stages experiential learning model have been well received since it was proposed during mid 1980’s. In this paper, we approach the analysis of Kolb’s Cycle from an engineering point of view, where we develop a mathematical model of the learning curve when Kolb’s experiential learning cycle is use. Furthermore, we analyse the characteristics of the derived model for example, learning stability and learning robustness. We conclude with set of important characteristics of Kolb’s cycle that we could clearly explore after utilizing the control engineering tools. The most important characters are accommodating the uncertainties of the students learning ability. This paper is one of the few trials traced in the pedagogical literature where control engineering methods are applied for studying pedagogical process.
