Second engineer was another term for assistant chief engineer, used on some 23rd-century starships. (TOSS)

The implication of the different term is that chief, second and third engineer stand watches rather than leaving engineering in the hands of a low-ranking ensign during beta and gamma shifts.

Farid Singh was second engineer of the USS Mumbai. (TOSS)
