    Fluid mechanics is a major course of the most students in engineering specialty. Computational fluid dynamics software is an important tool in the study of fluid mechanics science and engineering. Firstly, the necessity of adding the contents of computational dynamics to undergraduate learning is discussed. Secondly, the feasibility of adding the contents of computational dynamics to undergraduate learning is discussed in the theoretical basis, teaching conditions, class hours, teaching content and class hour allocation and assessment methods. Finally, the preliminary attempt has carried in the teaching process in order to stimulate students' learning enthusiasm and initiative, to improve the quality of teaching. The results show that the students' interest was stimulated, the understanding of basic theory was deepened and the teaching effect was improved after adding the contents of computational fluid dynamics to undergraduate learning. Compared with the past, the students' final average score has improved. The new ways of teaching reform about this curriculum are put forward in this paper on the basis of in-depth research and analysis of the main problems existing in the teaching practice.
