    Engineering Physics perhaps?

    Engineering is afterall applied physics. In general, engineering physics is more of a blend of physics, and particularly the theoretical side, behind the engineering.

    This is a reasonable discussion - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engineering_physics

    Some examples of programs:

    http://www.engr.wisc.edu/ep/engrphys/curriculum/curriculum.pdf [Broken]

    http://www.princeton.edu/pub/ua/epp/ [Broken]

    I would recommend contacting the particular university of interest concerning EP. One may use a search engine to determine if the school has such a program. Of course, one may major in physcis or a particular engineering discipline and take courses in the other program - i.e., engineering with physics courses, or physics with engineering courses.
