    Search for course details and look at the kinds of things you'll be doing in the modules. So if you're going to be doing some programming in one of your courses you might mention your programming experience.

    I think that's got some good stuff.

    If there's advice about talking about wider reading, mention some computer related books. If you like chess, maybe mention that.
