Abstract—Nowadays in China, there is a huge gap between the capability of newly graduate students and that required by software industry, which caused a severe supply-demand contradiction between universities and software industry. To solve this problem, this paper proposed a novel practice capability maturity model for software talent cultivation (STP-CMM). It consists of four levels: Awareness Level, Curriculum Level, Project Level and Enterprise Level, which represent a path of continuous improvement for those universities who want to gradually improve the practice capability of their students. STP-CMM has been running for years in the Software Engineering Discipline of Software College of Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), the results have shown that STP-CMM is of great instructive significance to the practice capability training of software talent.
