If Chemical Engineering is the name of the department, I would uppercase it. I would not uppercase "curriculum", though, since this is not a reference to a specific document or the like. It's just a normal noun, same as "class" or "professor" or "book".

By title, it would be Chemical Engineering curriculum, as it's topically referring to the department/subject. Curriculum is rarely capitalized unless in an abbreviation such as "curriculum vitae" (CV), for example.

...and how about "Students in Chemical Engineering are required to..." or "Students in chemical engineering are required to..." ? –  user8400 Jun 6 '11 at 15:32
    
@user8400 I suggest you used lowercase for "students" :) –  Paul Amerigo Pajo Jun 6 '11 at 15:58
