Can unreal engine use any scenes from maya / any objects created with maya .
Moved this here from Off Topic (since the question is On Topic).
You can just import obj and fbx files -> so make sure that you export your meshes and skeletal meshes as fbx or obj files.
Can you import entire environments from Maya to UE4? - UE4 AnswerHub (importing an entire scene)
You’ve probably heard it before, but using a modular workflow is the safest option.
It may be time consuming, but it works.
Basically you just set up your environment on a grid and then snap it into place in UE4.
Of course the grid locations, snaps, and size need to match in both programs or it won’t work.

I apologize that all these post (excluding the forum post) are for UDK, no information is on UE4.
