The first student satellite to be launched by ISRO would be Pratham, which has been under development for some time by the IIT-Bombay.
The second satellites will be STUDSAT-2, which will be built by a consortium of multiple engineering colleges affiliated to Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU). The STUDSAT-2, according to the STUDSAT team, is a twin satellite mission that aims to demonstrate inter-satellite communication and increasing temporal resolution for remote-sensing applications.
STUDSAT-2 will be the second satellite to be launched by the consortium of engineering colleges after the STUDSAT-1, which was launched in 2010.
The objective of the STUDSAT-1 satellite was to see to it that educational institutions develop miniature satellites and communication link between the satellite and ground station.
The STUDSAT-2 will aim to demonstrate inter-satellite communication with twin nano satellites
