I  tend to agree with the poster who suggested you need two years of university-level math study to even begin to grasp the concepts used in controls engineering.      However, you might be able to teach yourself the math using khanacademy.org before becoming a university student.    You'll just need someone to point you in the right direction.    Start with functions and with differential and integral calculi (two different subjects).    This presumes you have already studied the math subjects prerequisite to calculus.    If not, do that first.

is a control loop something like the collar that you put on your girlfriend/boyfriend?

The math involved with control systems get really complicated really quickly.  But the basics can be picked up quickly, as long as you have the mathematical knowledge.

Its also true that its not an area that you can get by in without theory.  In the end the control system you implement is actually completely based on theory.
