Cochrane, who joined Wasps last year after playing for Watsonians, Boroughmuir, Bedford, Doncaster and Rotherham, is a former Scotland U21 captain.
The 30-year-old told Edinburgh's website: "It's great to fulfil a lifelong ambition to play for the team where I was born and grew up.
"It's taken nine hard years of graft to prove my worth. I never gave up on earning a return to Edinburgh and I'm really excited to join.
"Wasps helped me prove that I was capable of playing at that level, so when Edinburgh came knocking at the door, it was a dream come true."
Edinburgh coach Alan Solomons said: "What's important here is that we have a good Scottish player who has gone away and done it the tough, hard way.
"We've kept a very close eye on Neil who's got talent. It's great to bring a player who's from the region back into the fold.
"He's exceptionally committed to coming here. A guy like that will be massively motivated and I think will add a lot of value to our side."
