tin god = idol, a person erroneously regarded as holy or venerable
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

“I’ve known too many men who were little tin gods at their University to be impressed by it.”
little tin god = idol, a person erroneously regarded as holy or venerable
Thank you for your efforts.
