So I see that there's engineering, applied physics, and engineering physics majors offered in the colleges I'm applying to (though engineering physics is an option in only 2 of those colleges). I'm all confused and baffled now as to the differences in each major (and Wikipedia helped just a little bit...). My physics professor says that applied physicists are knowledgeable in more areas than engineers, and can move from field to field instead of staying in, say, mechanics forever. That was all the help he offered, though, and I admit that he is a bit biased. I would appreciate any help to clear this up for me.
