Which branch of Engineering uses the most Physics?

I would love to be a Physics major but it seems I would never get a job. Engineering is the safest bet, but I still want to learn a ton of Physics.

Depends on what part of physics you like best. No matter what, most engineering branch uses a large amount of physics. Mechanical engineering - kinematics, dynamics, etc Electrical engineering - anything electrical Civil Engineering - statics

If you like physics go for it. If you are really good at it there will always be jobs. All engineering is about equal in its use of physics.

From looking at the notes of some of my friends, I think Aeronautical Engineering involves a large amount of Physics and Maths. I'm a Physics student myself, and they do a lot of quite similar stuff (Thermodynamics and such).

Nobody seems to have mentioned optics or teaching. There is also the root to quantum mechanics.
