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.
