The nine graduates toasted their achievements at the town's famous North Euston Hotel.
It was a double celebration for Fleetwood Nautical Campus as many graduates were the first to complete two of the college's three-year degree-level courses.
Harrison Jon Cassidy, William George Churchill, Liam Cowie, Richard James Haigherty, Benjamin Horton, Alex Middleton and Macauley Zack Norris graduated with the Foundation degree in Marine Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
And Samuel James Anderson successfully completed the HNC Marine Engineering programme.
The eight were joined by new graduate Garrah M R J M Aldhafiri who celebrated achieving the HNC Marine Engineering qualification.
Captain Neil Atkinson, Head of Fleetwood Nautical Campus, said: "The College is proud of the achievements of its students, who have studied through a variety of routes to gain a nationally-recognised qualification, and wishes them well in their chosen career.”
Graduates will complete additional industry courses before embarking on a career as Electro-Technical Officers (ETOs) in the Merchant Navy.
ETOs look after the highly advanced electronic and electrical equipment on board the ship, assist the Chief Officer in handling routine electrical works and also coordinate work with on-shore technicians.
