I would strongly advise that you be able to talk about both your past experience working in research as well as what relevant topics you've learned in university. If you have software experience, definitely mention it. It is very important that you understand how to write a succinct yet informative literature review. There is a good chance that no matter what project you are put on, that a fair amount of writing will be required, so play up your writing strengths. Also make sure you have a friendly demeanor, everyone in that faculty is like family but are still very serious and committed to their work.
