KTH Space Center gives students the opportunity to build a real satellite that will be sent to space.

Here you can read the blog about the ongoing work with the satellite MIST

The satellite is a 3U CubeSat, primarily built by students working in small teams. The project was defined in 2014, and the work started on January 28, 2015. The project is lead by Sven Grahn, an experienced satellite project manager.

Five technical and scientific experiments are included in the KTH student satellite MIST (MIniature STudent satellite). The experiments have been proposed from inside KTH and from two Swedish companies.
