Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The class is great. There is a lecture and lab portion. The staff is more concerned with you actually learning useful material rather burdening you with busy work. The lab relates directly to lecture and are interesting.
I learned a huge variety of things. Material science covers a large realm of subjects. I learned all about material properties, processing and structure. A great example would be how a metal fails or how composites are made or what happens to the micro structure of steel during tempering.

Advice for students:
Pay attention to the subjects that the professor highlights. Material science covers a huge amount of varying topics. When the professor says it is important, write it down or it will get lost amongst all the other material.
