Here we suggest to choose College level and Confident from the offered fields so that you get a quality project idea, not some project for primary school science experiments.

This website is more sort of DIY thing, however you can get great ideas from it, just be careful with category you choose. And, don’t worry if the first tons of projects are some wooden tables and decorations, eventually you will get there. There are great projects on that website, you just need to seek and find one that suits your needs.

This is a great technology projects website. MAKE is a popular brand for projects in the tech world and you can not only get inspired, but you can actually find suitable perfect project idea to make it your own and who knows, maybe even win an award! Projects here are mainly based on Engineering.
