We propose a maturity model for computing education which is inspired by the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) used in software engineering. Similar to CMM, the Capability Maturity Model for Engineering Education System (E 2 -CMM) can be used to rate educational sector according to their capability to deliver high quality education on a five level scale. Furthermore, E 2 -CMM can be used in order to improve an institution's capability by implementing the best practices and organizational changes

For this purpose we have selected SEI-CMM as our base model for developing E2-CMM framework, which can be used for continuous process and quality assessment in education sector. Finally, this paper concludes with a brief discussion on the capability assessment and rating methodology that can be used for ranking the level of maturity of the educational organization.
