Sappers are known for their expertise in demolitions. Nothing is cooler than blowing the hell out of stuff! 

Besides the cool factor though, demolitions play a very important role on the battlefield. Through the use of demolitions, engineers are better able to provide mobility, counter mobility, and even survivability to units. Hence, why you have to learn it inside and out at Sapper School!
