Eng in an escort is a great way to learn how to pilot and fly it, especially the more nimble escorts. The engineer is more forgiving which helps you not get neg'd out in the fact that you are much more squishy than in a cruiser.

This is how I learned as my first character is an engineer and after much fun in various cruisers I made the change to a Defiant and found it much harder to stay alive. But later on a made a Tac captain as I wanted higher dps.
