Mathematics or Engineering?

I absolutely love and enjoy studying mathematics and physics. My question is what is the difference between studying engineering and mathematics at university level? I know engineering is more of applied mathematics and principles of physics than it is dealing with theory and proposing hypothesis etc... but that's pretty much what I know... How do you go about deciding what to do as a career amongst the two if both have a commonality (to some extent) in what they include? Thank you. I do not know if I have posted this in the right section but knowing that engineering is a subset of mathematics, I think I made the right choice! Am I right? This forces me to ask another question which is how are the two related? Thank you very much.
