for the sake of

Hi, what the "for the sake of" means in it?
It makes the sencond sentence too complex for me to understand.

How are the two degrees Masters of Science (MS) and Masters of Engineering (ME) looked upon in the IP and the legal field as a whole? Both degrees would be in an engineering discipline which we will say for the sake of the argument is in Electrical Engineering.

    In this case, "for the sake of the argument" means "in order to simplify the explanation (which follows)". The idea is that whatever follows will be in terms of Electrical Engineering, but that the same argument/explanation will apply equally well to any field covered by the two degrees.
