Starting really from the roots... Math, algebra, physics (basic knowledge), some knowledge in biology/biochemistry and of course physical, organic, inorganic chemistry, quantum mechanics (probably). But don't be afraid... it's all part of the basic studies at University. JUST TO ADD TO ABOVE Quantum, very limited, depending on specialization. Main use is in inorganic chemistry, but unless your specializing in that, deep quantum is left for the physicists. Biology is not mandatory, unless you yourself would like to specialize in a biology related chemical engineering degree, such as genetic engineering. Just know your maths, physics, and of course, chemistry.
