For a nice collection of projects at various levels, take a look
in the two books by Richard Crandall:

"Projects in Scientific Computation", R. Crandall. TELOS/Springer-Verlag
1994.

"Topics in Advanced Scientific Computation", R. Crandall.
TELOS/Springer-Verlag
1996.

Both are described in some detail on the TELOS web site at 
http://www.telospub.com/ in their "catalog" under Scientific
Computing.
