An engineer carrier is one of the meanest tanks in the game, and it is perfectly effective in combat; my alt is an Engineer carrier and I can count on one hand the number of people who are capable of soloing the ship. The skills that you listed in your post each contribute to the stats of the carrier and are worth the investment as well.

As for the weapon selection, you're best served by going with Beams as you can get the most out of them in terms of skills. You'll be able to use the target subsystem skills that come with the carrier, as well as more efficiently utilize the Lt. Cmdr Tactical BO slot as a beam ability can be used in any of the slots.

For additional skill consideration, mistformsquirrel got it right
