    Why not try a little bit of each and pursue which branch you enjoy the most?

    Choose what you love best, physics. I was steered into engineering and wasted several years.

    Choose physics.But if you're afraid about finding a job,you can get your bachelors degree in engineering and then apply for graduate school in physics.
