I want to be in the research, development and construction of quantum computers, quantum circuits etc? General electrical engineering with a focus on quantum tech or will something along the lines of physicist be enough? Thanks

It depends a bit on the type of quantum computer (ions, spins, superconducting etc).
It is a rapidly developing field, so it is impossible to tell which technologies will still be "hot" in a few years time.
However, regardless of the type you should get a degree in physics, you can decide on the type of QC you are interested in at the PhD stage.
