Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The course is an entry level course for all engineers. Since every engineer will have to take it, usually in their freshmen year, it is important that you seek help early and often if you're struggling. I personally loved my professor. He was willing to work with students and understood that MatLab and the general idea of coding was far from many people's experiences. As such he took time each class to make sure every student had adequate instruction along with personalized help should they need it. I would also highly recommend not to get frustrated easily and to go with the mentality that you want to learn as much as you can about MatLab and coding. If you are willing to learn and correct your mistakes the class will be a breeze, otherwise you'll be struggling as you slowly get further behind.
I would definitely highlight the professor and his teaching style. My class was a combined lab and lecture, so as we learned the material we were able to put it directly into use in our daily assignments and labs. We also were able to gain help directly from the professor, rather than a TA, which greatly helped in clarity on certain assignments.

Advice for students:
Ask for help, and ask often. If you get stuck on a part, ask a classmate, ask your professor, or ask a tutor. Coding is one subject that you cannot get behind in. Concepts move quickly at times, so be ready to cover a lot of material within a few days. Also don't get frustrated too easily, MatLab can be difficult at times. If you can't figure something out, walk away for a little while and come back fresh, often you'll be able to spot your mistakes.
