Usually the officers were

Commander
First Watch Officer (IWO)
Second Watch Officer (IIWO)
sometimes a Third Watch Officer (often the Obersteuermann)
maybe 1 or 2 Cadet officers (Fähnrich zur See)

Leading Engineer Officer (LI)
Second Engineer (Ing)
Junior Engineer (Ing)
maybe a Cadet Officer Engineer

rarely a Medical Officer (Arzt) was carried.
