      Depends on the branch of engineering you want to pursue. For example
      Electronics for EEE
      Chemistry for chemical eng
      Biology for bioeng

      All engineering branches need maths and physics.

      As Carmel points out, maths and physics are useful for pretty much all types of engineering, and depending on the type of engineering, there are subjects that are more useful. For Bioscience engineering, definitely biology.

      First maths and physics, then all of them! Personally I have found PE, art and english also very helpful.

      I think Carmel has answered this really well, as a rule of thumb always physics, usually maths and then other sciences and technology subjects.

      I think maths and physics are the most common across all branches of engineering.
