Can I get a job as an engineer or as a researcher, other than astrophysicist, with a degree(s) in astrophysics?

It would be difficult to compete for an engineering job in the US with an astrophysics degree. It would be the rare or desperate hiring manager who would give you an interview. Then you would need the specific engineering skills they were looking for (which you might have, depending on the field and your background).
