Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Studying industrial engineering I would recommend to take into consideration studying materials as it is necessary for any engineer to know about materials and their properties,and also to understand how to work with every material,to know the weaknesses and the strenghts of each and every material an engineer will ever need.
I have studied many materials from the periodic table and now I know what metals are good for some uses. I also know the fe-c phase diagram which is also really useful for engineers. You got to know materials well if you want to prove people you are a good engineer and you know your things.

Advice for students:
To succeed at this course I had to study a lot for the exam and I have attended every single course and lab. My teacher was really explicit at all of the courses and he also draw a lot to explain some phenomena.
