    It all really depends on what you want to do career wise. With such a theoretical subject like physics, you have fewer options outside the world of academia. I decided to study structural engineering because I liked math and physics but I wanted to do more with the application of these two subjects as opposed to just research or teaching.

    If you really love physics and want to stay in academia, it will not matter if the uni you attend is not as renowned for it because if you work hard you can always attend a better uni for your postgraduate studies.

    If you are not that interested in eee and can't see yourself staying in that field after you graduate, you would be wasting the time you could have been spending working towards a career you would actual enjoy.

    Good luck with your decision
