Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course for those who want to major in mechanical or even civil engineering. It provides a general study of metals and properties of metals. With the lecture, students will be participating in a lab portion to better understand the material through performing experiments and analyzing data in the end of the lab. Afterward, students will write a lab report based on the performed lab, which is easy if you pay attention and understand the lab. There are two common exams for this course and one final, based on terminology and properties of materials. This course is a more relaxing and fun course if anyone is interested in taking the course, but is required for some engineering majors. This course does not disappoint, I enjoyed the class and the labs.
As I mentioned previously, this course mainly goes over materials and their properties. The lab portions help understand these materials and how to properly handle them or make them into tools using medium-sized or room-sized machinery. At times a tech performed how to operate the machines and one of these machines uses codes to operate a drill inside of it, which was pretty cool. Overall, this course is a fun learning environment in my opinion.

Advice for students:
I would recommend studying at least a week before the common exams and final. Also, make sure you understand the answers to the homework questions and take notes during class.
