SCWCD concentrates on the fundamentals of web-development. Servlets, JSPs, Filters etc..

But in real world, these alone won't be enough. And you'd most certainly be using a web-framework. So my recommendation would be to try out a project using a web-framework.
Spring-MVC is a popular choice on that. If you were looking for ideas on what a project could be on, some sort of e-commerce application would be a good start. Like a mini amazon.com

Although what Vishwanath said is true, you can make a project in just Servlets and JSP if you are looking for practice. You can try to implement some design patterns like MVC in the application to try something new. You can make a employee management system where every employee registers their attendance, apply for leave etc. There are many other management systems you can implement although I like Vishwanath's idea of e-commerce application over my idea

Why don't get a freelance job about Servlets and JSPs?

As other guys suggested, in real world there is a number of frameworks that are using in development like Struts, Spring, Hibernate. Let get your hands dirty with these
