The basic mechanics course in higher education is a basic course that must be taken by engineering students such as water conservancy and hydropower engineering majors. The mechanics courses of engineering majors in colleges and universities generally have problems such as few class hours and single assessment method, students have shallow knowledge, insufficient awareness of the importance of mechanics knowledge and low interest, which leads to poor practical application ability. This paper takes the three basic mechanics courses of engineering majors as examples, and makes a preliminary discussion on the future reform of mechanics courses from the aspects of teaching problems, students' characteristics and teaching reform methods, in order to provide reference for the teaching reform of similar courses in the new historical period.
