There are plenty of opportunities for students to do their own thing as
course work (or directed studies courses, if possible). Professor-run
projects are generally larger, more complicated things, that some random
student on their own is not about to write in a term or two. They often
live longer than a single student's entire tenure at the University...
Science(TM) tends to be a bit more difficult and elongated than sitting
down to write some straightforward program. Often you don't even know
if what you're attempting is possible, or will work well at all. If
it's straightforward for a student to sit down and write the program in
a few months, it's probably not very interesting or relevant...
