Galway-born Browne, who can play at lock and in the back row, has made 84 appearances for the province since making his debut in the 2006/7 season.
A torn Achilles tendon kept him on the sidelines for the whole of last season but he has become a key man in the Connacht pack this campaign.
"Andrew has been top quality this season after coming back from serious injury," chief executive Tom Sears told Connacht's official website.
"His ability to cover a number of positions is a real asset and he has put in consistently high performances this year in whichever role he has been asked to fill.
"The coaching staff are delighted with his form this season and believe there is more to come from him in the future as his game continues to develop.
"As a local born player he has a real affinity to Connacht Rugby and we see the qualities in him to become a vital member of the squad for years to come."
