    You don't need both. Do mechanics because if you do mechanics 2 you will have learnt most of it from physics AS

    Both mechanics and statistics are useful for an engineering career.

    Mechanics will be more useful for university, as mechanics is a key subject area for engineering, albeit more so to mechanically orientated fields like mechanical, aero, structural, etc.

    But a knowledge of statistics is generally very useful for an engineering career. It is probable that statistics are covered to some degree, at least, as part of the degree, and that this will be accessible to people without a prior knowledge of statistics.
