Technical drawing is highly underappreciated in a large number of engineering fields, which is why it is beneficial to change your entire frame of thought about technical drawing, and consider how it can be better incorporated.
Make sure you have all the right kit.
Try to get your hands on good quality stationery and drawing boards, ideally the large A2 to A0 size boards, in order to give yourself a challenge and produce larger, more detailed work. Furthermore, ensuring that you have pristine and well maintained scales and measuring equipment saves time, and gives your drawing a boost in accuracy.
Practice makes perfect.
