Can anyone who has the knowledge to help me on my engineering project?

Software – EBook Summarizer: An eBook company has hired you to write a program to help them to organize their books by their contents. Your program must read a text file of a book and learn the most common words that book contains. Given that the intent of this program is to understand the books’ core topics, your list of words in the book should exclude common words like: and, but, he, she, it, etc. that don’t help to understand what the book is about. Your program should output a summary of words that the book contains. Your code is expected to be efficient and well commented.

It's not clear from this description that you need any web technologies at all. But you could still use JavaScript to do this with a server-side engine like "node.js".

I'd guess you chose JavaScript because you already have a familiarity with development in the language. Perhaps you could begin creating the program, and when you run into any issues, post the code you have so far here and someone will help you overcome the issue.
