As to your actual question, the standard rules apply to engineering students as they do physics students. Letters of recommendation should come from the following people (listed in order from most important to least important)
- Any brilliant mind willing to write a letter of recommendation consisting simply of "This man is a genius".
- Research Advisors you did research with in a physics related field
- Research Advisors you did research with in an unrelated field
- Physics Professors you've taken classes from
- Professors from a related discipline you've taken classes from
- Employers from a field related to physics
- Employers from a field unrelated to physics
- Your mom
- Your cat
- A strangers cat
Keep moving down the list until you find one that matches someone you worked with. If you don't know any nobel laureates, then move down a step. If you didn't do any research in physics move on down a step. If you did some research but it was engineering related, include that one. If you took some physics classes, your next letters of rec should be from them. Next, you could include some letters of rec from some engineering faculty. If you can't find anyone from the above groups, get your manager from Burger King to write something. If you don't trust your manager from Burger King, then your mom is bound to say something nice about you. If that won't work, maybe mittens the kitten will meow with approval. In general, just try to stay closer to the top of the list when finding people to write your letters of recommendation.
