Engineering is applying Physics and Maths to industry, and is generally more sought after and gives higher salaries. The other 2 are more niche and involve government funding for research.

A lot of the time in stats about graduate salaries, materials science is classed under 'engineering' so it's kind of hard to compare the two.

these might be useful.

But it will also depend on where you go. Anyway for things that aren't directly related to either degree (e.g. finance) I don't think one is more employable over the other.

If you want to be an engineer, study engineering. If you don't, then pick whatever is most interesting, because your degree choice out of these three will have almost no impact on your expected earnings. Source: am physics grad, work with and know plenty of other STEM grads.
