Just like "Sparks" would be an electrician or electrical engineering.
"Sparks" would usually have been a nickname for a radioman or wireless operator. (The "Sparky" always getting rung up by Radar in the MASH TV series would have come by his handle the same way.)

In the old days, before she'd acquired a given name, we might have had "Sparks" Uhura.
