That will frequently take out up to strong enemies right away. As you level up and get more passives and more crit, that opener only gets better. To me it's the best discipline for leveling up as it has a good mix of burst and aoe, which is pretty much exactly what solo content demands.
Explosive Probe should be detonated by Series of Shots in rotation, or by basic attack off-rotation. What you just described is pure utility waste for engineering.

OP I'd say, try and level all 3, don't just respec. That is the best way to learn the spec and get the feel of them. Read up on descriptions of all abilities, passives included.
