Hi, Flight Engineers are usually in charge of making sure all the systems on the aircraft are working properly. They conduct pre-flight checks of all the equipment, run checklists, and do some troubleshooting when things aren't working. On modern aircraft, flight engineers aren't really used anymore. There are some aircraft that still use them, but they are widely being phased out. Most airline pilots now start as a First Officer (aka Co-pilot).
